Watch this space for a future release of Stascom. Currently fine-tuning is done to the next release, after which it will be tested by a number of beta testers. When ready, the new release will be announced on my Twitter page.
I started developing this program as a pet project in late 2015. Initially only a group of friends used the application, until it was suggested that I share the package publicly. As a screen reader user, I tend to add features to benefit this group. However, some of the features can be equally handy to light-dependent folks. 😉
