Other Comments

Fabrice Leyne is a developer who truly appreciates the value and benefits in making his apps accessible. He also made MenuBar Stats 2 accessible. The Clock was considerably more challenging to make fully accessible; however, Fabrice took a very customized app and made it fully accessible in a very short amount of time. I have to give him kudos for doing such a great job and with such enthusiasm.
