Re: Vista!

Hi Chris,

I thought Eric Dammery promised Vista support on launch day when 8.0 was 
released?  Did I misunderstand FS here.  Looked out on the website and 
didn't find any mention at all.  I guess that is why FS refused to go on ACB 
radio main menu tonight with Jeff bishop because they have no product for 
vista.  Congrats to the other readers that got it right and support Vista 
today and not whenever they feel like it.

As far as I know, JAWS is not officially supported under Windows
Vista.  To my knowledge, the  only screenreaders that officially
support Vista are Window-eyes, Hal, and I dunno if you'd even count
this as a an official screenreader, but Freedom Box System Access is
also supported under Vista.  It's too bad that FS appears to have
dropped the ball on this one.
If you're a JAWS user and you want Vista, you're screwed.
