Subject: Best chat program for a newbie? (was:Re: Jaws in MSN!)


Hi guys,

I missed a lot of this thread because I don't use any chat program  so I

didn't open the messages.  but I gave in to my curiosity and read one or
two 
of the most recent ones just now, and it made me wonder if maybe I
shouldn't 
invest a little effort in learning at least one of the chat program,
just 
case it allows for a little more online communication one of these days.

So I have a pretty basic question, and I invite listers like Bruce who
seems 
to have extensive and comprehensive knowledge of this topic.  I would
love 
to be able to use at least one chat application, but I'd love to know
which 
would provide the optimal combination of widespread use and popularity
as 
well as relative simplicity for a newbie like myself, including whatever

scripts are available for Jaws 7 to make it usable, if they have to be
found 
and installed.

Thanks.  It's just that in the last couple of years before the Internet 
spread so widely, And I could still see the text on my screen, I used to

belong to a local BBS (bulletin board system) and really enjoyed
real-time 
chat.  But when I imagine doing that with Jaws, it overwhelms me, the
very 
idea, of lines of text constantly appearing onscreen, immediately
followed 
by yet more, the very thing that was so exciting and fun when I could
see to 
do this visually.

Thanks for suggestions.

hi Jouie,

As I mention in my previous email, the script that come with jaws 5.0
may not support fully for msn 7.5.  After I do a double check, the
script that include in jaws 5.0 for msn is version 1.85 and with jaws
6.20 is version 1.90.  As I remember correctly, jaws 6.20 only support
msn up to version 6.2, so, for version 5.0 of jaws I don't think can
support up to the latest version of msn.

Ya I realized those now. But, my question now will be, if ever you want
to do it manually, where can you find this option? I mean the settings
for enabling/disabling the typing sound?

hi Jouie,

may I know you are using JFW 5.0 with which version of MSN?

when you read the help section, do the help stated the command is work
find with which version of MSN?

if you are using MSN higher then version 6.2, this command may not
useable.

if you are using JFW 7.0, this setting can be found in JAWS Verbosity by
pressing insert+v.

  I read the help section of my JAWS 5.0. I went to popular applications
and I chose MSN Messenger looking for JAWS commands for this instant
messenger program. Then, as expected, I found few commands that have
triggered my curiosity enough for me to open MSN immediately! As stated,
I pressed ctrl shft f12 (toggle command) to hear a sound if the contact
is typing. Also, ctrl alt f12, also a (toggle command), to hear JAWS
says a message if the contact is typing etc. Now my question is, do
these commands work?
