Hi Birkir,

Yes...I also posted to the DSSHE list. I don't see a problem with reposting. The fact that a company wants blind users to help do accessibility testing of their product seems like is a good thing to me.

This is truly fantastic news.
Do you subscribe to other lists, such as DSSHE (though Buffalo) or other DSS staff lists?
I am sure this info would be of interest to many there.
With your permission, I will repost this info to the Euroblind technology mailinglist at least.
Thanks
