Screen Reader/2 - Programmed Access to GUI

        In this paper I will describe the Screen Reader/2 personality, that is the 'look and feel' of Screen Reader/2. As I do that I hope to give the reader an introduction to the Profile Access Language (PAL), which is one of the most improtant components of Screen Reader/2. This PAL introduction will not be formal, in the sense of careful syntax and semantics; I want to get across teh idea of PAL so that one might want to program in the Profile Access Language to access the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of OS/2 and of Windows applications running under OS/2.
