Ken, Yeah! I think your writing a book on the topic is an excellent idea...capture all of the knowledge about the past before it disappears!

Not so great article. It is a Jaws love piece. They don't even mention things like ASAP which I found was a much more superior product than Jaws and without it I would have never made it through College without writing my own screen reader.

I have been thinking of writing a book on the history of access including all the old fogies before they pass away. Think anyone would be interested in that?

Great article.

However, and perhaps I misunderstood, but it sounds like the author suggests Jaws for Windows was the first screenreader for Windows. Nope. The first was Windows Bridge, from SynthaVoice Computers Inc. and was out at least three years before JFW.
