This is far off topic for this list and I apologize to
The members, but I have to point this out.
There were six major and six minor inaccuracies in Mr. Leventhal's
article. He obviously did not use VO at all and, unfortunately, poorly
researched his topic. If anyone is interested, please contact me off list
and I will be happy to provide a rebuttal article written by an experienced
VoiceOver user AFB has, so far, refused to publish.

Well that depends on who you talk to. I think the alternative program is
anapod? I know that AFB didn't find it accessible.
