Just a few remarks from a rbutil dev:
- I have heard from different blind people that rbutil works a little
bit in Jaws. It should read Button names and more, so that it is at
least useable. So i am a bit confused when you say nothing really speaks..

- Bug reports: i have often said to blind people, that to improve
accessibility in rbutil (its possible to improve it) we need exact bug
reports on what doesnt speak. Till now, i got exactly 0 bugreports on
accessibility... which means i dont need to fix anything :-)

So if people want it to get better, get involved, write bug reports
(perhaps with the help of sighted people)..
