Re: Does anyone think this will be fixed?



Raman is right. RFB&D is far too tightly in love with Windows and M$ 
proprietary tricks.

May I add that several of us have complained to them about their website. 
I have, and I know highly respected officers of RFB&D have themselves 
complained--all to no avail. 

Their excuse is that they feel the need to provide glitz to the D in their 
name. They believe glitz and accessibility can't really go hand in hand, 
so glitz and the D part of their name win, inasmuch as they're now the 
greater part of RFB&D's subscriber base.

Not good. Not good at all considering as how these same people are making 
critical, early decisions regarding technology for deploying DAISY 
textbooks.
