I to agree that comercial screen reading technology is the way to go, but for many people, especially blind people, $1000 or more, just to use a computer that may costs as much if not more, just isn't feazible. I'm not by any means slamming your post, because all of your points are valid, I guess, I'm just throwing my thanks out their, for apps such as NVDA, for example, because it makes computers with out, for example, Jaws For Windows, accessible quickly. One thing I love about NVDA, is it's ability to run from a flash media device, without timing out, and installing display mirror drivers. So, in conclution, thanks open source comunity for NVDA, and thanks FS, for Jaws.
