Hi Roger,

I just wanted to give everyone some food for thought. If it wasn't for
Freedom Scientific, we would all be left in the dark when it come to
computers. We would not all be here discussing the features of JAWS 10,
rather we would be wishing someone would develop software that would open up
the world of computers to us. For that reason, I am thankful for Freedom
Scientific, and the hard work that goes into making JAWS what it is today.
After all, many of the programmers at FS can use their computer whether or
not we can or not, but they work hard every day to make sure that the blind
is not left behind.
