For those who may not watch ABC, there was a fascinating story about
the two guys (from Brisbane/Melbourne) who wrote the open-source NVDA
screen-reader program on Monday night at 8:00pm (almost certainly
available on iView).

The story is title "The Blind Leading the Blind" and is about how these
two visually-impaired/blind programmers wrote NVDA, and how the Mozilla
Foundation provided assistance and how the lead dev. says he will never
let it become proprietry.

Apparently used by over 275,000 people in over 170 countries.
