One thing about my amazing tips is that they come from just using the IDE day 
in and day out. There are tasks that are just brutally painful and eventually I 
say to myself there's got to be a better way and with a little playing around I 
usually can hit pay dirt.

One tip that I'm going to post right now is that if my settings under 
"Preferences" are set correctly, the ESC key will close certain windows.... Now 
the down side is that I've yet to figure out how to set my "Preferences" 
correctly. It's trial and error.

...and yes this is a quiet list. I've tried to lure you all out into a 
discussion on many occasion but if it weren't for a few such as yourself and 
Jim H and of course my big mouth I think the list would die.

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

Hi Jim C,
I'm a Bookshare member. 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.

Do you know of anyone that has subscribed to this service? If so, what sort of 
feedback are you / they receiving?

If you are a Bookshare member, you might want to know that they have books 
about Eclipse. 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.
