Hi :)
I totally agree.  Being able to access an alternative is almost always good

Different use-cases often require slightly different tools or a
jack-of-all-trades.  MSO tries to be jack-of-all-trades but ends up being
such a horribly bloated mess that it significantly slows things down quite
a bit.  I prefer the FOSS idea of finding a good-enough tool for the job
and then gradually finding better and better ones if i specialise.

Ironically your last sentence explains the difference between "free" as
used in FOSS compared to bargain basement deals - but without much of the
cultishness.  (a fine band btw)

Regards from
a Tom :)

For anyone interested in this topic (accessibility of PDF documents for
those relying on screen readers),

Ok, my last word on the subject...

Regardless, providing an INACCESSIBLE PDF form to the 99.99% of the
people who can fill them out without issues, and providing an
ALTERNATIVE for those who cannot, would completely circumvent and render
moot any potential legal issues.

People who seek to violate MY Rights to do whatever I ant in my personal
and business dealings - meaning, yes, I have the absolute Right to NOT
provide accessible ANYTHING to ANYONE.

Handicapped people (or whatever is the PC term of the day now for people
who have 'accessibility' needs) have the Right to find someone who can
or will provide services they can access.

Sorry, but Freedom ain't Free.
