Hi Richard,
I don't have much of an impression just yet. I was going to start going
through the O'reilly book about vi and vim on Bookshare. I did a little
tweaking with JAWS by scripting just a little to make some things either
stop talking too much or talk correctly. Mostly, on my system, something at
the bottom of the screen started repeating the word backslash instead of
saying what was going on when I was hitting right arrow. I fixed that with
a script. The whole window was talking, so I made a modified version of the
say non highlighted text function. I really haven't done any serious
editing yet. I'm going to start going through the book and seeing how that
goes. I think it will probably go pretty well, now that I have those little
pieces of code in place. I'll keep you posted on the results.

Thanks.

Jim

Hi Jim,

Since you now have vim working, could you please tell us your impressions
of
the editor?  I used to use vi on Unix and would like to know if it will
work
well with jaws.

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Tom,
The code you sent worked for me. Thanks. Do you use GVim or Vim?

Thanks.

Jim,

Below are the additions I made to my _vimrc start up file which is in the
c:\vim directory.  I made these  changes quite a while ago, so my
recollection of each is now a bit weak.  I am afraid the most I have are
the
comments I made for each setting.  If you use any of these, be sure to
add
them to your _vimrc file and not to overwrite your file completely.

I also made changes to the Jaws config file for vim, so I am not sure how
much help the settings below will be without sending you my Jaws config.
If
you wish me to send you my Jaws config file, let me know.

Tom

Adds to _vimrc relating to use with Jaws speech:

" Select a horizontal cursor.  Works best for Jaws finding and reading.
set gcr=n-i-r-c:hor10

" Put only the cursor column number in the 15 character ruler area.
set ruler
set ruf=%v\

"Turn off left, right and bottom scroll bars.
set go-=l
set go-=r
set go-=b

" Use pop up dialogs and not console dialogs.
set go-=c

" Do not use tear off menus.
set go-=t

" Do not wrap cursor at margins for cursor keys
set ww-=<
set ww-=>
set ww-=[

set ww-=]

" Turn off the intro message at startup.
set shortmess+=I

Hi,
I got vim for Windows to try, just to see how well it worked with JAWS.
Does anyone know how to make the character under the cursor stop
blinking?
That's making JAWS say the character I land on over and over. I see a
little C program in one of the directories under the installation that
makes it blink, but I don't know how to make it stop.

Thanks.
