I have seen alot of discussion on this list about the best language to program
a game for the blind in.

I have installed this software with my Jaws 9 system and so far it seem to be
I am currently downloading all sample code and tips I can find to help me to
start programming in this language.
I have no books with the disk so I am going to be trying this slowly.

Could there be a book on the disks I have not found so far?
Has anyone else bought this and played with it?
Are there any lists I can subscribe to for help on this programming language?
thanks for any help you can offer.
When I get my first program started I will find a place to upload it for others
to check out.
