Dave, I realised that. I wasn't trying to pick at your suggestion, just giving a point as to why, if John wants to benefit the most people, scripting for the remote might not help him achieve that.

About $80 for the remote. John asked, and I answered. I wasn't trying to
find one that might or might not have universal appeal or usefulness. Just
know that this is one I'd personally like to have scripted.

Do many VI people have those remotes? I don't and I'm not sure how many
others will either. How much do they cost? I'm assuming not cheap and since
the majortiy of blind people don't work I suspect uptake for this will be
low. Of course I appreciate how it will be useful to those who do have the
remotes though!

John,

I'm struggling with the interface with Logitech Harmony Remote. It allows a
single remote to be programmed to issue a series of commands in sequence, to
simplify the control of separate audio/video components.

The initial launch, installation, and the ultimate web interface are all
very inaccessible, even with JAWS 13's OCR.

Off-list I can "loan" you the files to install, but unfortunately in order
to get it running, you need an actual Harmony remote connected via USB. A
long shot, I know, but what a great tool to have for the VI.

Hi all,
While I wrap up some last minute scripting projects, I am looking for a new
application to script. I won't be doing any financial applications or office
applications this time, but any other suggestions are welcome.
I've gotten rather quick at doing this so challenges are also welcome.
John Martyn
