it is surprising to note that there is no dealer in India for the
same. All the more there is no comparison of jfw to windo eyes. jfw is
releasing its hindi version too perhaps in July this year. if so done
it will become king of all the screen readers. what is more needed is
bios reader for any blind computer reader. if some company could do so
then that day blind computer users will become the master of their own
computer. however that will require inbuilt speech synthesiser
compaitable to all computers windows without disturbing the windows to
run while they are in bios.
 i hope that day will also come.
till then goodbye
