you might explain to the guy that more people would use Braille displays if they did not cost roughly five thousand dollars too.

To All Interested: I wrote a private message to the original poster on the other list explaining that Braille isn't as readily available here is it is in the Netherlands where, as in many European countries, those who prefer Braille access receive it, no questions asked. I told him that when I wrote my comments I never dreamed anyone would be using a Braille display. I felt that in view of that supposition my own comments were rather short-sighted. Obviously he made the assumption that at least some people would be using Braille, just as most of us made the assumption that he would be using speech. I hope this helps clarify the issue somewhat.

It is true that at least with earlier versions of the program it is necessary to use screen-reader specific keys (mouse simulation keys) to perform some functions, but this is no different than with many off-the-shelf software applications. It's the on-going issue of familiarity with one's screen reader in addition to basic program accessibility. It has been my experience that Applian Technologies has been most responsive in addressing possible problems and conflicts between application and screen readers. I say this as someone who has not even upgraded in quite a while because I have found that so far the version I have meets my needs completely. I'm sure I'll upgrade someday; and when I do my bet is I'll find access is even better than what I have with my current version. Hope this helps clear up any confusion about the program's accessibility.

On this other list a person claims Replay AV 8 basically can't be used with a screen reader. This is the way I interpreted the email message. Opinions please. Sharpen your pencils and write the pros and cons on Replay AV 8. Thank you for your time in this.
