Thanks for those tips, Blake.  Soon as I get my eyes open a little more, i'll give them a shot.

  Hello and welcome to the list. I can answer your second and third questions.


  I created a batch file to make launching the emulator easier. To change discs all I need do is change the extension to .txt, open the file, change the disk name and put the .bat extension back. I usually run it from the command prompt but I could just as easily create a desktop shortcut via send to, create desktop shortcut. There are probably other ways to launch the emulator more easily under Windows, but this is what works for me. I would be happy to share the batch file if it would be helpful.


  To make Jaws go to sleep while running the Apple2 emulator, do the following.

  1. Load a disk into the emulator.

  2. Press insert-f2 to display a list of some Jaws programs such as dictionary manager, keyboard manager etc.

  3. If using Jaws 14 and above, select Settings Center. If using an earlier version of Jaws, select configuration Manager.

  4. You will be asked for a configuration file name. Mess.jcf is sufficient.

  5. If using Settings Center, type sleep into the search field. Tab to the results list and check the relevant checkbox. Press Ok.

  6. If using Configuration Manager, you will need to find sleep in the settings menu. I think Sleep is under advanced settings. Once found, check the relevant box and select OK. You may need to hit control-s to save changes under Configuration Manager.

  Good morning,

  I was just made aware of your apple emulator and have had a blast thus far playing with it.  It was, actually, one of the first computers I ever used as a summer student at the Texas School for the Blind as it was then called in 1986.

  I have a ton of questions, ok, really only two or three, and I hope they're within the scope of this list.  

  Question 1:  I noticed bex is included in this package.  Would, if I were so brave, it recognize my juliette embossor?

  Question 2:  Is there a way for me to create a shortcut on my desktop to load mess so I don't have to drop to a command prompt every time I want to work with the emulator?

  and question 3:  How to I tell jaws to go to sleep when it sees the mess window?  I've been a jaws user for years, since way back in the dos days, but I'm just gonna be honest...I've forgotten how to do it!

  Ok, nuff questions for now...time to play!

  Thanks for any help you can provide.
