Good day,

Please accept my apologies if this has been covered previously.  I am a 
trainer who uses a screen reader to interface with my pc.  I'd like to use 
Xerte to author content.  I was enormously impressed by how accessible the 
output of this tool was when I looked at the demo on the site.  Sadly, 
however, I found I was unable to create content with Xerte because I was 
unable to get my screen reader, Jaws for Windows, to read the data on my 
screen.  Is there a screen-reader friendly version of this application 
that I can download?  I tried version 2 and 3 with no success.  Jaws 
appears to think the entire application is just one big flash window with 
no menu bar or buttons or anything.  I was able to access the menus 
through hotkeys but was never able to actually create anything.  Like I 
said, if this has been addressed before, please accept my apologies and 
kindly direct me to a link or archive where I might find it.

Thank you for your time and have a nice day,
