Hi jonathan
Thanks for replying to my question.

I have heard of 'curses' mode but am unclear as to what it is specifically. I 
assume it is something to do with the cursor positioning and the ability to 
switch between normal and insert modes within VI/VIM. 

The other Screen Reader, which I seem to rmember reading somewhere works with 
VIM is Two Day Screen Reader (TDSR) developed by Tyer Spivey. TDSR and 
instructions for installation can be found at:
