RE: memory with jaws

Cool.  That works now but there's an annoying delay between jaws saying the
file name and the rest of the information.  
Thank you,
Harmony.

Disk space and memory are two separate things.  I'm not arguing that
jfw11 won't take more memory, it would surprise me if it didn't.

However things like the daisy player are only going to take memory
when actually running.  SAPI voices should also only be loaded when
actually needed, I don't know how intelligently the solo direct voices
are handled though.
