Thanks - but the python wrapper (pytvision.sf.net) is pretty broken,
particularly the windows build.

Any other suggestions?

Looking for:
 - builds ok under gcc on linux and mingw on win32
 - has python wrapper available that builds with the same tools
 - works
 - can use the win32 cmd.exe console

I've tried urwid over wvision, but still no luck.

My main need is to create a user interface compatible with blind users'
screen reader programs - for both linux and win32.
