Hi Rick. This is great. I'll have a more in-depth look later in the week as I'm 
pretty tied up with other projects at the moment.

  Hi everyone,

  found this at the Freedom Scientific news for FEb - March 2006


  JAWS 7.10 Coming Soon

  Freedom Scientific is set to release JAWS 7.10 shortly after the upcoming 
CSUN conference in March, and we wanted to offer a sneak peek at some of the 
  new features users can expect in this update. JAWS 7.10 will be a free update 
to existing 7.0 users and is loaded with features and fixes. Here is just
  a brief look at a few of these.

  First, JAWS 7.10 features a new installation program using Microsoft Windows® 
Installer technology. This new installer enables support for automatic updates
  right from the JAWS Help Menu. Now you will be able to easily download and 
install minor JAWS fixes and features as soon as they become available.

  In addition, this is one of the steps in preparing JAWS to support the 
upcoming Microsoft Windows VistaT operating system, scheduled to be released 
  the end of 2006. The Microsoft Windows Installer technology is the 
recommended solution for access technology companies developing for this new, 
more secure
  Operating System.

  For users of Microsoft Word®, JAWS 7.10 has added three new Navigation Quick 
Keys after receiving many requests from users. Once you turn on Quick Keys
  with INSERT+Z, pressing M lets you skim through any misspellings in your 
document without entering the spellchecker. Pressing the letter A, will move to
  any grammatical errors. If you turn on Track Changes, pressing R will find 
and report revisions. These new keys, in addition to all the Navigation Quick
  Keys available for Word since the JAWS 7.0 release, continue to make JAWS the 
most powerful and intuitive solution for Microsoft Office.

  JAWS 7.10 also features full support for the newly-released Corel WordPerfect 
Office X3.

  A complete list of features and fixes will be posted on the
  Freedom Scientific Web site
  the week of the CSUN conference, so stay tuned.
