Certainly there are, and forgive me if I'm wrong, but Joe's reply was in direct response to a comment made about Jaws. Joe further went on to say:

"Some significant screen-reader upgrades are in fact free."

Joe's comments suggest that he was referring to screen readers other than the free ones. Surely *all* upgrades for free screen readers are free, not just *"some significant" ones?

Of course, only Joe can confirm his original point, so let's not get bogged down in this. *Smile.
