Re: nvda with eloquence

Thank you Nimer, I am one within a substantial group of users who believe that we have been using a legitimate substitute for eloquence. I will share this information with them, and in the same breath, apologize to the list for recommending software which appears to be illegal.


Gratefully

Hello Geoff,

There is no legal way of obtaining Eloquence without purchasing Eloquence first, or purchasing and owning another program which includes Eloquence, but none of these exist at this point, to my knowledge. So yes, this is an illegal piece of software, and the blindhelp website is known for distributing cracks and illegal software, thus in my view, any reference to that site ought to be prohibited on this mailing list, and any other which wishes to not get shut down for discussing illegal activity. There are legal ways for purchasing Eloquence, but no legal way of obtaining and using it for free unless you have very old software which contained sapi4/5 Eloquence.

Thank you GENE, to the best of my knowledge this is a widely available
and legitimate piece of software produced by IBM.  if anyone has
knowledge to the contrary, please let me know as soon as possible.
