Hi,
I believe that putting the cost of an SMA toward something they
have been
avoiding (in a very disrespectful manner) is rewarding bad
behavior. They
have taken plenty of money on an annual basis and been treating
customers as
non-entities since well you fill in the version number.

OK.
The idea of sacrificing one SMA was really to underscore the
seriousness of
the petitioners. I admit it may be beyond what is essential.
It is one thing simply to sign a petition. Pretty much anyone
can do that,
but if users are so serious about the situation that they would
willingly
pay one SMA just to get what they should have been delivered
anyway, that
sends a powerful message. If you were going to buy a screen
reader for the
first time or even if you were recommending to an agency the
screen reader
to endorse, wouldn't you hesitate to go with a product with users
in revolt?
Well, that's the idea. Right now, JAWS is the only screen reader
that will
do what I need done, and I'm grateful for that. It is just ...
Well I've
said it already.

Making the SMA sacrifice a part of the petition was just an
idea. I regard
it as optional. Remember, I'm inviting comment, and I appreciate
yours.
