Hello Dominik,

This morning I downloaded and tried your new rbutil testversion. I was very
impressed about it and think it offers us (the visually impaired) much
possibilities to work with. I work with Hal 6.53 and brail and could rather
easy find my way through the screen and the items on it. I hope that you
will go on working on the program, so that we all can use all possibilities
it offers us. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Astrid
