Jack,

I don't believe that anybody from either AFB's or NFB's technology groups is
participating.

We have been focused quite a bit on JAWS largely due to the evident need.
We've made quite a bit of progress, which I hope to have worked in to beta
4.  Beta 4 will undoubtedly be delayed by at least a day to make this
happen.

- Peter

You wouldn't believe this, but accessibility is the least of my concerns.
Although the emphasis is on Jaws, Don has written some very nice
configurations, (set files) for Window-eyes.

I sincerely take my hat off to all of you. I am wondering if anyone from the
technology repositories at NFB or AFB is participating in the beta.

Cheers

Jack
