Hi Domonik,

Just to add to what others have said, its fantastic, well done!

I'm using it with Jaws and having no problems.

Subject: rbutilcli - console interface for the blinds ?

Hi folks,

as i have heard many complaints about the non-usability of rbutil with Jaws
and other utils to help the visually impaired, i have though about making a
Command Line interface to rbutil. I think this should be more accessible ?

So i have begun a first test for a rbutil cli version.
And i have now a version which can do nothing, but present you a preliminary
text interface which you can try to navigate. Also Autodetection should
work, nothing else is ready, but i want you to try it out and tell me if it
is accessible for you.

Is it useable ? or completly borked ?

As there are many ways to do command line interfaces, i want you to tell me
what i should do better or not..

You can get this alpha test version as a windows binary at:
