  if copyright is not a part of programming discussions, then I guess we should 
start writing to each other in C++ and ignore anything that ain't in that

    No, i agree:  this is not the appropriate place for legal discussions.
    If i could just have a chance before this thread is officially stopped, i 
just want to give everyone concerned about this issue an invitation to email me 
directly:  dusty_bray@xxxxxxxxxxx

    Thank you very much, everyone, for all your help.  i want to look into the 
issue much deeper and see if this is actually true.  If it is true that 
software developers are prohibited from providing some of the most basic and 
obvious of adaptations to the blind, then FS has a monopoly on accessibility 
itself, and you should be very, very concerned.

    Thank you,
