QuoteWhy would they drop prizes because of some poor people who cant afford it?
Quote from: "Louigi"Because we are all living people with compassion who are more than business animals who care only for money.
Quote from: "Sam"It should be part of the human rights that screenreaders should be freely available.
Quote from: "Diamond"We're simply requesting that they implement a policy that would allow someone to make payments over a period of time to buy the software instead of having to pay one huge lump sum upfront.
Quote from: "Diamond"so where's the "free marketing"?
Quote from: "psishock"Problem already solved: Go to your favorite bank, ask for a loan, pay it back over a period of time.
Quote from: "psishock"Well as i've said it, if i would need a similar program any time in future, or if i anyone would need my advice in this field, i would suggest this company, thanks to your post. That is free marketing for them for sure.
Quote from: "Diamond"While it is definitely true that on a corporate scale most companies don't care about the individual, any good business model will and should take the consumers needs into consideration. TO do otherwise is counter productive since without your customers you have no business at all.
Quote from: "Diamond"The fact that you actually believe this shows that you really have no understanding of how small of a market we're dealing with in this particular case.
Quote from: "Diamond"LOL talk about being unrealistic. How easy do you think it is for someone who is either unemployed or in a low income bracket to get a loan?
Quote from: "Diamond"You're arguing just for the sake of trying to force your extremist point of view down everyone's throat.
Quote from: "psishock"That's fair. How would you expect a company to sell you their products, in advance, if you most probably wont be able to pay for it at all?

Quote from: "uncloned"you didn't fully read what I wrote.there is a history of MS buying program to include in Windows.
