Jamal Mzarui has developed TextPal, a full featured text editor that is friendly, powerful, and open source. It uses a standard Windows interface for an application that supports multiple document windows. It seeks to optimize efficiency for users of the JAWS or Window Eyes screen readers by automatically verbalizing relevant information.
>TextPal works like NotePad so you can begin using it with the same commands. Many more commands are also defined, generally involving a
>modifier key like Shift,Control, or Alt in combination with a letter that begins the name of the command. Most commands provide enhanced verbalizations compared to default screen reader speech, e.g., automatically reading the current line after a command completes.
