I've made some Jaws scripts for some programs in the past, but I've stopped creating scripts, because I think it would be easier to find programs that don't require scripts.
I haven't found helpful things in Commodo that can't be done in TextPad, but I found very many helpful things that can be done in TextPad but can't be done in Commodo, and TextPad is faster and it doesn't require any Jaws scripts. So why should I make the effort of creating scripts for a program like Commodo?
It could be more perl-oriented than TextPad, but it has very few features that could help a little which cannot be found in other editors, so I prefer to wait and see if it will become better or if Jaws would work better with it.
But anyway, it is still very slow and I don't like this at all.I think this is an important negative point of development environments like Eclipse and VS.net and Commodo also has it.
I have a Core 2 Duo at 3 GHz processor, but it starts still slow. What could I do to make it start as fast as TextPad?

It sounds like some improvements are needed in the keyboard interface. The problems you describe do not make Komodo a horrible editor. Evidently, it is a frustrating one for you so far, but it deserves an appreciation of its beneficial features as well before condemning it as you do because of some hot key and focus issues. These issues are probably the kinds of things that a set of JAWS scripts could resolve -- just as scripts smoothed some rough edges with Visual Studio, which was mostly accessible out of the box. Here is a revolutionary concept: how about starting an open source JAWS scripting project for Komodo? Feel free to ask questions if you need tips on the JAWS scripting language, such as how to assign focus to a control or add a hot key. I'm sure you'll be able to pick up the language quickly with a little effort.

And I need this because I cannot select that tab in other way. Here is what I've tried: Opened Commodo, chosen File menu/New/File then chosen perl and pressed enter.Then I've modified something in the file, and pressed control+S to save it.The "Save as..." dialog appeared, and I wanted to cancel it by pressing escape.In that moment the focus was lost. It didn't went to the textarea where itwas before pressing control+S.So I was trying to put it back there. I've tried pressing Control+Home butJaws (8) just spoken some words, possibly the titles of some tabs, ortoolbar elements... I don't know, but the focus was not moved to any programelement. So I've tried pressing Control+Tab for more times, but nothing happend.After switching to another application then back to Commodo, and a few othercontrol+Tab and tab keys, I've seen that I could move from a tab title toanother, but those tab titles were for something else, not for selecting thecurrently open document. I couldn't get to those tabs, and even if I could do it, I think thatCommodo has big bugs, because otherwise it wouldn't lose the focus that way. (If some list members say that it is great and that only Jaws 6 has problemsaccessing it).That's why I try to move the focus to the wanted tab title by clicking on itwith the Jaws cursor. But finally I was able to move the focus to the currently opened file tabtitle using F6 for more times. It was ok, however I couldn't move the focusfrom that tab title to the textarea using Control+Tab, or just tab... I've seen that if I have chosen to close it without saving the file, itasked what I wanted to do, but it didn't even offered a hotkey for choosing"Don't save any file" I think that most editors allow us to just press "N" in order to choose a"No", and we don't need to tab for more times in order to be able to pressthat button. So it is not a great editor, not even with Jaws 8. Maybe 9?? Or 19? :-)I like some of the ActiveState's programs if they are good, like ActivePerland Perl Developer Kit, but not their inaccessible GUI ppm or Commodo.
