Subject: RE: Information about gnopernicus

Thanks for the information,

I work with gnopernicus and emacspeak out of necessity. Both open source products are improving in quality. JAWS & Zoomtext are both wonderful feature laden products. However, their initial purchase price and more importantly their maintenance costs for upgrades are horrendous.

My versions of JAWS and Zoomtext were both orpaned by WinXP. Gates and company build obsolescense into their products to maintain cash flow.

This modestly paid school teacher can't keep up. Thank goodness for gnu, linux, and other open source projects.


I'm pasting the 
contents of a message from the blind-programming list, which gives a flavour of 
how far Gnopernicus has got.  I don't know any more than I've just read in 
this article, but thought it was worth passing on.
