Does Window Eyes allows to route the mouse cursor to the PC cursor then movethe mouse cursor in the application, without making Commodo pop up strange kind of menus? I've tried to do this with Jaws in order to read the names of the files which are printed on the tabs titles, but I couldn't do it.I am asking because other list members told me that Commodo works fine with newer versions of Jaws than 6.0, so I needed to install Jaws 8.0 and try it, but it doesn't work well at all.If Commodo is not at least as accessible as TextPad which is a great editor, this means that it is not accessible and I don't see any reasons to use it.Thanks.

Komodo edit works very nicely with window eyes 6.0. The problems youhave listed with JFW is non-existent as far as Window Eyes is concerned because Window eyes has successfully implimented Mozilla accessibility which is based on the IAccessibility2 model that is being implimented in mozilla based products such as Firefox and thunderBird. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised because Komodo edit worked right out of the box without me having to create any Window Eyes set files for it.

Things have to be fixed. I can only comment on using JAWS, but I have found the two most annoying problems are: 1. Sometimes when I come back from a dialog, JAWS will no longer read thecontents of the currently open file. Sighted people can see the cursor isthere, and they can see what I type, but JAWS reports nothing. Actually Ctrl + Home will say "Top of File" and Ctrl + End will say "Bottom of File", but It will not read anything else. Alt Tabbing away, and coming back does nothing. Ctrl + Shift + E does nothing. Killing JAWS and restarting it does nothing. If I close the file and reopen it, then it works just fine.2. I was not successful getting any custom hightlight assignments to work.So JAWS will not read any selected text. You need to use the JAWS cursor to navigate through some of the dialogs, but that is at least workable, and probably scriptable. But I don't get very good class names when using Home Row. I get good handle values, but it is clear that JAWS does not show which each window type is. -----Original Message----- From: programmingblind-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:programmingblind-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of james.homme@xxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, December 21, 2007 2:14 PM To: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: Anyone using Kmodo Edit?
