Dam straight baby!
JFW cost me $1800 Canadian. (Ya: Canadian dollars are real lol!)
That's not to mention the SMA's we need to maintain as well! No biggy
right? Right! It's worth every penny.
Glen is so right when he brags up Rockbox. For example, I also have a
talking book machine that plays audio books on CD's that cost me $500
Canadian.
I don't even use the darn thing anymore thanks to Rockbox & the ever-loving
voice UI! I could by a cell phone loaded with talks (speech for some Nokea
phones for only $500 US. I do have a talking GPS that cost me $2200
Canadian. Where does it end man? Thank freaking God I am a poor musician
eh? lol!

Later...rocker

In case any of you folks whom use your eyes for the computer are wondering
what we who don't, use for our computers, you might be interested, or not,
to know what we generally use.
We use mostly one of two major products:
JFW (Jaws For Windows)
http://www.freedomscientific.com
and "WindowEyes" from GWmicro
http://www.gwmicro.com
Most of us crank up the rate after a short time of using it, so the default
speech is not exactly what it is like.
But you can download demos of these programs if you are interested.
I think the experience may help you to know why we are used to having
computer-related feedback, and why we appreciate the efforts done with
Rockbox.
Also, you may be shocked at the price we must pay for these products, hence,
another thing to appreciate about Rockbox.
Glenn
