unfortunitly j.say is not enough like using jaws to test with so i would
not say that this is a viable option. with when i have j-say installed on
a ystem it changes jaws enough to make it not a acurit test of access.
it alous the user to say things to dragon as well that dragon would not
other wise know about like next button and next block of text and so on
so that option is not viable
