If you use Windows XP, I'd recommend windows Messenger, since it's already built in to XP and the scripts for it and JAWS are right there with JAWS.

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?
