BBC stands for British Broadcasting Company/Corporation. Not sure which.

Colleen If you are lucky enough to be Irish, you are lucky enough!

Yes, saw this on the BBC and I can imagine it will affect many
English JAWS users who rely on Wikipedia for their leisure.

OK. I contend this isn't off-topic. People who use the Research-it
feature of JAWS to look up something on Wikipedia on January 18 may
be in for a surprise, and it isn't Freedom Scientific's fault.
This only applies to the English version, but the Board of Directors
of Wikipedia elected to take the English version off-line on January
18 to protest certain pending legislation in the United States
Congress -- statutes aimed at strengthening intellectual property
rights and preventing privacy.
I won't get into the politics. I just thought I'd send out the alert.
I don't know how the shut-down will be implemented, i.e., whether
there will be a message that pops up or whether it will just be
temporarily unreachable by browsers. I suspect it is the former, but
who knows?
