As for field pass, it is better. Also, they play some kind of irritating
music during commercials.

Yes, I can do field pass on the Mac and windows and sirius but I keep
watching for it to work on linux. I finally dug out a realplayer for ppc
and it appeared to install and shows up in the Applications menu. But
when I tried game links it showed the title of the game and said
"inaccessible" and when I tried a .m3u and a .ram file they didn't play
though I didn't get	o errors--well, it said something about "grayed
out" on the ram file. However, when I added some gstreamer plugins, totem
picked up the m3u and ram file. But still no go with nfl.

I do have to say that I am impressed with Orca's progress although I
haven't been very impressed with the progress of gui screenreaders for
linux up till now. I can finally really navigate iceweasel and get some
results: listening to a church service and radio stations and even
accessing my online banking.

There is a project for a silverlight equivalent which might help with mlb,
but you have to compile the media codecs (Moonlight) and I can' find some
of what's listed in debian. I also find I'm a bit handicapped because I'm
using ppc; for instance, there's no adobe flash player for linux ppc and
live365 keeps sending me to the linux player installation page for the
non-ppc version. But the only Intel machine I have that could be
commandeered for linux is being used for something else right now.
However, I do overall see improvement.

Is there a lot of difference between iceweasel and firefox? I've made
attempts to install firefox but failed so right now I'm just using
