Hi Nicki. I bet you probably have keyboard echo turned off. The default state of the scripts is to have keyboard echo turned off, and while that's nice for some people, I've always had mine turned on, just because it's the way I've always done it.
Like I said, it's a fantastic program in theory, just needs some accessibility tweaks.

Chris,

I do find that part of a screen name is cut off, but not, say, yours, as in toonhead. It's more of what's cut off on MSN if it's not maximized. As for the hanging issues, I don't have those at all.

Hi folks

This one is interesting. I just installed Miranda IM the latest version of course! When I use it, the contact list is cut off, in other words, someone's screen name may read like this

toon...
bru...
sca...
and as if that weren't annoying enough, when in a message window, typing a message becomes nearly impossible, because JAWS hangs. The spoken keystrokes aren't even as fast as I can type (remember I have typing echo turned on), and it's really a pain.
Is there a more current version of the scripts that somehow solves these issues? I don't see how people use this program with such limited accessibility.
I love the idea of Miranda IM but either the scripts I have don't appear to be working, or something else is just funky with my system.
