satellite tv and the blind.



You might be surprised at how many blind people "read" this newsgroup. Satellite TV offers a huge choice of high quality music radio stations.

Many blind people access newsgroups by means of a software package called JAWS (Job Access With Speech). It does an excellent job of converting conventional Usenet posts to speech but it does have problems with Outlook Express. Does anyone know why OE doesn't remove signatures from reposts?

Also blind users using the JAWS skip control to jump past reposts to get to the reply often find that there isn't one, or that an entire post has been reposted. Trimming really does help. I'm sure sighted readers would find it useful as well.

Thanks to all.
