Re: e-sword and jaws 5.0

Steph,

  The best pointer on ESword I can give you is to find another Bible 
program.  Not that it is unusable with Jaws, but it is not fully functional, 
requires Jaws cursor for many things, and would be too much trouble to be 
your only Bible on PC--which is really to bad because it is one of the best 
free Bible programs around.  I have tossed a few e-mails back and forth with 
the guy who wrote ESword and sent him much data on making programs 
accessible to screen readers, by his request, but he has made no changes in 
the program.  I started working on some scripts to make ESword easily usable 
with Jaws, but have not found the time to get them finished.  The online 
Bible works well with Jaws and there are scripts floating around 
BlindProgramming.Com and a couple of other sites for it.  However, I think 
the newer versions are designed to work with screen readers and would not 
require scripts for optimal operation.  You can download the free Online 
Bible program at:

HTH,
David
