I Was Wrong

I was wrong to recommend Easy CD-DA Extractor from Poikosoft to people. It once was a
very, very accessible program, but has become increasingly less so over
the versions. It is still a marvelous tool for burning audio or data
CD's or data DVD's. But for ripping CD's, version 12 is all but
unusable, or at least it has been in my experience. The author insists
that standard controls are being used, and if our screen readers can't
handle standard controls, that's our problem. I am truly sorry to anyone
who, on my recommendation, may have purchased this program and given its
author money he does not deserve. If you are looking for a good,
accessible burning solution, Easy CD-DA Extractor meets those
qualifications. But as other accessibility has decreased over the
versions, who knows what may happen with the burning capabilities. I
really thought the author was committed to trying to make the program
accessible, but clearly he is not, and my public endorsement of the
program was unfounded. The track listings and the file location controls
are not standard controls, nowhere near standard controls. The author
says he will not sacrifice functionality for accessibility. We are not
asking for decreased functionality, was are simply asking for the
accessibility. It is unfortunate that it has come to this. Again, my
sincere apologies for the high praise and recommendation I gave for this
program in the past.
