Hi,

Hole heartidly agree re putty and TeraTerm.

You can grab Tera Term here with JAWS scripts that will probably need to be compiled for your current version

Chris,

I don't use Jaws so I don't know the answer.  However, I do know that PuTTY uses a non-standard way of writing text to the screen and that's why it's such a pain.

NVDA works ok with it but I have found that Tera-Term is far, far better with screen-readers.

I have been using it to connect to my Raspberry Pi and editing stuff with nano.

Incidentally a couple of days ago I got a console-mode screen-reader going on the Pi, if that's what you're connecting to.

Now you're going to ask me where to find Tera-Term...it took me ages and I had a couple of abortive attempts when I managed to install something without the SSH plugin included.  So I will see if I still have the installer and send it to you off list if you want.

Mike

I’m finding when moving around, it’s very hard to locate a specific word or character. JAWS will miss words or lines as you pass over. When you return with the cursor keys, it made read it twice.
