    Blimey!!! Never knew this was ever a single!
    I love such surprises you bring us Paul!
    Thank you Thank you!
    If they had released the beautiful Through The Barricades instead of Fight For Ourselves as the first single, this era might not have become the start of the ending for them.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I agree Ric Barricades would have been a much stronger lead. It could have recaptured some of the fans of “True”. This 12″ is one of my most coveted in my collection.

    I have used NVDA off and on for years, and it has been my only screen redear for about nine months now. I am almost completely satisfied with it, having used JAWS for years. I use it for everything I do on the computer, from basic wordprocessing to media playback to web browsing to programming, and I have no problems with it. I cannot think of anything I did in JAWS that I cannot accomplish just as easily in NVDA, and many things are better (web browsing being a major one). So yes, NVDA is great at browsing the web, but it is just as good at anything else I throw at it.
