arg,

what she is talking about is a law in several countries that allows folks to take legal action if a company clamed something is for the use of and/or good for doing, and then the software falls flat on the job.

under such laws a company like FS could be held responsible for replacing or otherwise making good for the rather bad performance and usability of jaws 12, a law that I intend to check into to promote here at home!

Dear list I just want to be sure that Jaws and in fact all screen readers
are sold under licence I ask since an interesting topic arose on a list I am
not a member of,a friend just selects any item he thinks is interesting It
was pertaining to jaws however. One of the posts said he was not sure about
USA, and mentioned the SGA act,that in Uk means the sale of goods act of
1979, It states an item sold must be "fit for purpose" in English law it is
6 years in Scotland it is 5, the listersaid "i do not know about USA. Well
that act is of course very important but although many Posts were posted, no
one mentioned that software is in fact sold underLicence I expect the Usa
law is much the same but of courseI maybe wrong I know computers
i.e.hardware is but since Jaws was the subject can you confirm what I
imagine is the case regards dorothy
