Hi Peter and Mike.
Peter: That's a shame. But thank you for the detailed explanation!
Mike: The thought of attempting to install a Windows screen reader
under Wine fills me with fear, dread, and loathing. <grin> MS DCM is a
nightmare in Windows itself. I cannot imagine dealing with it --
assuming it even exists -- in an emulator. Besides, what I want to
accomplish is strictly using Linux/UNIX with Orca. Braille translation
software is just a missing piece -- at least currently, and at least to
my knowledge. Are there options out there I'm unaware of?
Thanks again, guys!

Hi all. There's one Windows application that I'd really like to be able
to use in Linux: Duxbury. I am not surprised that Orca sees it as an
"inaccessible". My question, however, is this: Is the reason it is an
"inaccessible" due to how Wine is implemented or how Duxbury is
This is almost certainly a Wine issue. I bet Wine has no knowledge of
the at-spi infrastructure. Have you tried to install a Windows screen
reader under Wine? It probably won't work but who knows.
