Just curious here, but how does a blind person utilise the mouse to copy/paste at all?
When you whrite a reply to me, do the fowlling:
- Press control+end to go to the end of the text
- now press shift+left arrow or top arrow. You will see the text selected.
- When you finished, you can use control+c to copy and control+v to paste.

Hmm, ok. Genuinly curious.. I have rather deministed vision in my right eye, my brother is blind in one eye (both due to accidents), and my aunt is blind in one and almost blind in the other.
Very curious just how such a person navigates a mouse curser around the screen.
This was not the whorse cases.
For your aunt I recommend (if you live in US) to visit www.freedomscientific.com
and get the last updates and brochures about JAWS for Windows ( Job Acces With Speech ).
I work in a Portuguese dealer of that product. If you need anything else, just send me an e-mail/PM.

Omen, the way I THINK it works is like this:
You tab across the screen (and I can't think of many screens - including the desktop) and when it rests on a new icon, it tells you, thru your speakers what item you're sitting on. I remember this guy's computer saying things like:
Dial Dash Up Networking (yes, it read the dash as a word)
The ONLY problem we ran into was the item I wanted was not in his control panel and there was no other way to do what we needed.
Actualy you can use it withnnot dot or dash, or you can put the program saying "Icon number <number here> from Control Panel named <name>" and so on. :P

Just as a note... I doubt that the mIRC window will change from its current state to a plain text window.
Me too. But only from a defaut setting.
With a plain text window you can have external scripts/programs doing other jobs on mIRC window if it is active (for example, if X hapening in the screen, Y will be done)

I hope that in the future mIRC can switch or give an option to do that.
I personaly use mIRC from 1999 and this is the first request/whatever you want to call it that I make. :P
A nice day to all,
