I had the same experience reading books using the mouse. I'd just rather listen to Jim C's great tips. I have studied the menus which has also been most helpful. All I need is actual practice which I am now getting. Even though I am not very good yet, I find a general amaizment among my sighted programmer friends that I can do anything without those little red lines. I wouldn't trade my work with Text Pad for anything. It gave me a very good foundation. I've been out for a week with eye surgery and now just plugging through my mail. I am amaized this is the first message I have found from my favorite list (grin).

I like the service. I just haven't read the Eclipse books. Actually, I did get the one called Eclipse and look at it. I read some of The Eclipse Cookbook from another service, and for what I want to do, which is learn how to do tasks, I think it's better. The only thing about it, though, as with many books written for mouse users, is that you have to substitute the keyboard way of doing things. If you start watching http://www.nonvisualdevelopment.org, you will start to see content about Eclipse put up there by me. And if you continue to contribute tips to this list, I will put them up there and merge them with what's there. Thanks.

I haven't read any of them yet, so I don't know how good they are for someone who is blind. One of the books is here. http://www.bookshare.org/browse/book/203489 Jim ________________________________ This e-mail and any attachments to it are confidential and are intended solely for use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
