Hmm, okay, we have one positive data point (from software which, sadly,
is discontinued) and one negative data point.  If anyone is using any
other assistive tech, let me know -- can someone with JAWS 3.7 test it,
or IBM's Home Page Reader?

Although, with that negative point for JFW 3.5, it's looking like I'll
have a trip back to the drawing board soon...


PS:  This would all be easy to do if I'd just convince myself that
      Idyll Mountain can afford to license Reef's edapta technology,
      but unfortunately we're not -that- rich yet. ;)
