Hi All,
 
There has been a rather lively discussion on this petition, both at
Accessify:
http://www.accessifyforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=149
 
and Maccessibility:
http://www.maccessibility.com/
 
I proposed a non-speech version of JAWS: put in a page, get a
"transcript" of what JAWS would have spoken.  It could support all
settings, or only the most common settings that real users use.
 
This should have the advantage of reducing the learning requirements and
not eroding JAWS revenue.
 
Does Lynx already perform this function?  If so, shouldn't there be an
outreach effort to non-blind developers about how to use Lynx as an
evaluation tool?

Dear all!

Not every freelancer designer, developer, can afford buying JAWS, to
test the web sites they build. 

Therefore, see how this problem may be solved!
