Subject: [TechTalk] OE Classic 28 ads even more accessibility


OE Classic is basically a cheaper, or free, if you don't want to pay to get the pro addition right away, OutLook express for modern versions of windows. The pro versions, from what I can tell, are just quick releases that the free folks will get anyway when the pro version hits the next level. They continue to improve their accessibility. The free version is on 27 now but when the pro version hits version 29, 28 will be free to download. A link to the news page is below followed by the change log in version 28. The developer told me they have been testing with NVDA, not JAWS. so, I am sure accessibility will improve even more.
