Hi, Steve. None of the versions require purchase. The light version just doesn't require as much space on disk or in memory. You can download and install the full 64-bit or 32-bit versions without purchase. They are all free.

Sorry I don’t understand.


I thought it said that the light or free version doesn’t have screen reader functionality, but the paid for version does.


Because a blind person can’t actually see the screen, I would suggest that “making” them pay for accessibility just to use the program is a form of discrimination.


I’ll get off my high horse now.


All the best

No, it's not.  You just use the full version.

If you strip out the underpinnings needed for the screen reader to make an ultra-light-weight version of something, that can hardly be called discrimination against the blind.  The accessible version, which is actually the one most used, is fully accessible.

It is the function of creative men to perceive the relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expression that may seem utterly different, and to be able to combine them into some new forms--the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.
