Messageah sorry but .net is very accessible

we have a large number of programmers out here that are using it.  

go to:

and get the keyboard shortcuts, the setup hints, and the jaws scripts, and you 
will be running in no time at all.  

there are a set of tutorials in text format on the Jamal's documentation page 
as well.

Jamal Mazrui's Text tutorial packages and Applications, visit me at:
. to be able to view a simple programming project in several programming 
languages, visit the Fruit basket demo site at:

   > Well first I would like to ask why are you writing it in MFC if your using 
Visual studio 2005 why not use .net. 
  I am trying to write accessible programs. It appears that .net isn't 
accessible fully and that can be annoying. MFC seems to be the most accessible 
besides win32 and win32s (but thats a pain to use). Either way, I would use c# 
if it was generally accessible. If you have ideas how to make this happen, let 
me know!!

  I saw the Microsoft Outlook View and a few other controls in the com list of 
toolbox controls. What ones do I use and how? BTW, you can use those in .net 

  I messed with the MediaPlayer control and it's pretty cool...
