    It is in the discussion because real web developers building real web
    sites use this technique.

Roberto:
What is for u a real web site? One thing is having javascript for dialog like SCORM, one other is to have something for detect user configuration (that, for eg. In our country means violate user privacy...
    
   Andrew:    
    Right now support is through Internet Explorer, with JAWS (4.5+),
    Window-Eyes (4.2+), ZoomText (8+), to name the most common.
    
    If you use a technique like the "Flash Satay" technique, JAWS won't read
    the Flash content.

Roberto:
