Re: Latest readme

Michael Curran
Hi Charles,

Sorry, I just havn't ahd any time to test it.

RC1 looked fine to me, so as long as nothing in the NVDA dir has been mucked
up, I think NVDA will be fine.

Most of the changes from the first cd test were visual, or to do with the
textual content.

So, as long as NVDA starts, I'm happy with it.
(Which it did in the test I saw).

>>   The Mozilla Live Access CD -- 2007 CSUN Edition
>> Firefox Logo
>>   Welcome to the Mozilla Live Access CD
>> The Mozilla Live Access CD is a community-based effort which not only
>> explains what Firefox accessibility is all about, it also contains free
>> tools that can be used from virtually any computer. We suggest that you
>> carry this CD with you when you travel, and may need to access the web
>> from a PC with no assistive technology installed. You need not bring your
>> own screen reader, because this CD has several free choices made
>> available as a gift by the community.
>> First, there's the talking browser extension for Mozilla Firefox called
>> Fire Vox. In addition, there is a free screen reader for Windows called
>> NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA), which also allows access to many
>> applications for Microsoft Windows. Finally, you can simply use your own
>> screen reader or other accessibility tools if you run or install standard
>> Firefox or with the high visibility themes.
>> No installation is required from this CD to run Mozilla Firefox or the
>> accessibility tools that are contained in it, however you may choose to
>> install them on your hard drive. Windows, Mac, and Linux are all
>> compatible with Firefox, and full documentation is included on the CD. We
>> invite you to experience this CD through the start menu, via this readme
>> file or by exploring the directory structure on your own.
>> The contents of this CD are provided as a gift and were built by
>> volunteers in the community, which welcomes any contributions or
>> suggestions for future enhancements. The CD does not contain demo or
>> trial versions -- only totally complete versions of products. Make as
>> many copies as you wish. The contents of this CD are just a few examples
>> of what the community can do by collaborating. Thank you for using the
>> Mozilla Live Access CD.
