Benefits of AFL

The benefits of AsTeR , which is based on AFL, cannot be experienced by reading a printed document such as this; rather, one has to listen to AsTeR in action. Suffice it to say that AsTeR has made it possible for the author to read current technical material, on his own, that otherwise would not have been available for years (if at all). Further, he can tune the renderings (see c:rules_and_styles) to his liking and can even browse the document. Thus, AFL represents a gigantic step forward in providing the tools necessary to render technical documents in audio.

Several further points can be made.
