I'm a long-time Bit Che user, and I apologize if this is the wrong thread, but...Here goes. And yes, I'm a Guevara user. If one of the admins wants this elsewhere, feel free to do what ya need to do.
First, I want to thank the devs...As a blind user, it's nice to see software that's essentially accessible right out of the box, as it were, and doesn't need modifications to itself or the screenreader to be useable. Great job, guys.
Second...And naturally...Here's the problem. I'm not a developer, but enjoy ttrying out new versions, beta or otherwise, of software...For accessibility purposes, and so I can stay on the cutting edge of what's out there when given a chance. I'm having an issue with the current beta, though I think it's something I may have done incorrectly when installing, and I can't find full instructions anyplace. The "quick start guide", when I click the URL, tells me IE can't display the web page, so wondering if it was maybe taken down. The issue is simply that no matter what I search, I get zero results. So, here are my questions:
1. With the files/folders that came in the zip file, what goes into the c:\programs\bitche folder, and what goes in the AppData area? Running Vista 32-bit on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. yeah, yeah...I need to update my system. Money stands in my way. LOL
2. Not sure how to phrase this one, but...When I launch the executable, I've got the Guevara edition activated no problem. But, my screen reader, JAWS, sees 2 edit fields. First one is "Coffee Edit Combo", in which I can type something or scroll through a history of my searches if I haven't cleared them. Second one just says "Edit". So, which one should I use for typing my search? In the old versions, the plain "edit" box was first, then the search listview, then the "edit combo" with the history...Or, that's how JAWS saw it...So, layout's slightly different. For the record, I've typed in both, and still come up empty in all my searches.
3. Finally, since I've chosen to simply kill 1.60 since so many of my searches there seem to be yielding nonexistent torrents of late, what all do I want to remove from the AppData folder before putting the materials from the Zip file in there? Everything, or, should I keep the "Coffee" folder since that one doesn't seem to be included with the Beta Build 9?
Again, sorry if these questions are stupid...But, I'm truly stumped. Generally, I'm the kind of guy who can install something, Beta or not, and have it figured out in no time at all, provided no accessibility barriers stand in the way...So, it's not that I'm not semi-techie...Just having issues with this particular bit of software.
Thanks much. All help is appreciated, and again, I apologize if I've put this in the wrong area.
