aloha, all!

like most of us, i use IRC constantly; on the windows platform, 
i've been using mIRC for years, but i haven't been able to get it to 
work as well as it used to...

thanks to a pointer from Michael Squillace, i've recently begun using 
tIRC -- a set of scripts for mIRC that run either with JAWS, 
Window-Eyes, or using the Microsoft SAPI engine in conjunction with 
Microsoft Agent's merlin character, so the PC need not have a dedicated 
screen reader installed -- all download info is available at:


it REALLY makes mIRC inestimably more useable, and is better than any 
other script i've tried, used or created...  it also helped to upgrade 
to the latest release of mIRC (16 august 2007 - version 6.3)

installing and using tIRC is all pretty straight-forward, so, if you 
need a better IRC interface on windows, or if you know someone who 
does, you can tell them about tIRC and he or she can try it for 


You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of 
focus.                                           -- Mark Twain
