Yes life is not fair but that shouldn't be used as an excuse for
anything. I don't no much about these kind of software, but if it is
true that pitchtree are more accessible I would just wunder why there
couldn't be made scripts available for that rather, to drop costs for
everyone? Just a thought. But over all, I appreciate the work jhon has
done for blinttunes sound taxy and thunderbird. I love that scripts.

If you can develop this level of accessibility, John, -- and it truly is
great what you have done here, then shouldn't Quick Books be mandated to
provide this level of accessibility as part of their accounting package?
Once again, the blind are left having to pay extra to use a product that,
for a few extra dollars in development cost could have and indeed, should
have been included by the developer. Shame on Quicken. Here is another task
for advocacy groups both in the U. S. and Canada.
