I would like to thank everyone that has helped make this release possible, including my university, SIUE, the Sappy and Sodbeans teams (Neelima Samsani, Andrew Hauck, Susanna Siebert, and Louie Most), the fantastic developers out at Oracle (especially Tim Boudreau), Tom Wheeler and Jamal Mazrui for help understanding the NetBeans Platform and Screen reader APIs respectively, and the National Science Foundation, which is supporting our project under award CNS-0940521.
Thanks to all. Without your help, this release would not have been possible.
