Subject: [WebAIM] screen reader figures

Regarding the total number of screen readers, I have not been able to
find a figure, but Mark Stimson (from the Sensory Access Foundation)
emailed me a pdf of a study commissioned by Microsoft that found total
numbers of working age people in the US likely to benefit from
accessible technology (eg. they are blind or have a dexterity
impairment) but it didn't say how many actually use special keyboards or
screen readers, etc. I think this is the best data I am going to get,
though. Thanks
