    I have not been to your web site in a while and think that you really got a good one today. I am using VoiceOver on my mac and have not found and issue until this part. :)
    The email text edit transition to the web site and text edit for input is kind of backwards to the VO listener. And this edit box is not labeled. Just thought I would point that out.
    My point is, you have done a great job with the web site and nice video promo. I would like to promote VLR by using the audio from the video by making a podcast with it on the site. We will definitely put all the credits and web links pointed in your direction.
    By the way, I graduated from VLR back in 1997/8. Bak when we were upstairs. Ok, I just dated myself. :)
    Subscribing to the newsletter right now.

      Hello Jeff! Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know that there is an issue with our VoiceOver compatibility. I will check out how to fix it, and make sure that it is Jaws compatible, too. I will see if WordPress allows us to edit the comment box on posts.
      Jeff, we would be delighted to be part of your podcast. Thank you for asking for permission to use the audio from the video. Please go ahead, and send us an email when it’s posted:! We’d love to listen to it and promote it.
      It’s great to hear from you!
      Thank you, Jeff.
