[jaws-uk] Re: can't navigate round the BBC Iplayer

Stay off Internet Explorer 9 for now - with ANY version of JAWS.
There will be a new release of JAWS in due course.

Speaking as an IE9 user with 20-20 vision, I have to say that I hate
it!  Microsoft have also done much the same as they have with Office
2007 and 2010 and moved things around simply for the sake of making it
look different.

I haven't been paying proper attention to this, but IE 9 is worth
having, is
it?  I haven't changed to 8 yet, having read so many people saying
stick
with 7 as 8 doesn't work so well with JAWS.  Could go straight for 9
though.
Is it better than 7?
Thanks.

I went ahead and installed IE9. So far, so good.

Hi Daniel and all,
Obviously everyone is free to do what they see fit with their system.
But I 
am sorry to disagree with you over the upgrading issue here.

  If you know what you are upgrading, what you are looking for and
have a 
good reason to upgrade, there's no need to put up with, not just an
old 
peace of software, but a crappy one for that matter. I reckon the vast

majority of people are able to tell the difference between the two
words IE8

and IE9 to download and install the latter by error. To put the less 
confident computer user mind to rest, rolling back IE installation is
not a 
big task IMHO.

  Believe me, Microsoft didn't release IE8 only a year after IE7 for
no good

reason.

  IE9 is not compatible with XP and it won't install on Paul's system
anyway

so no worries there!

  While we're talking IE9 and browsers, I am really looking forward
for Jaws

to support IE9 and Firefox 4 too. I am going to upgrade to Windows 7 
hopefully soon and one of the very main reasons is to install IE9! I
hear 
Microsoft after all these years is finally releasing a browser that
worth 
installing *smile*. Firefox 4 is very neat and speedy browser users
are 
saying. A real jump from version 3.x. So come on FS, get your acct
together 
and release that patch we've been promised.

  Cheers,
  Amro

  Hi Paul, it's up to you but as I experienced the same problems you
have
  described in the beginning I wouldn't upgrade if I was you. My
reason for
  this is that, 1. I said that I was having the same problems as you,
this 
and
  still is I was using IE 8 so Dont think it would work. 2. My 2nd
reason 
why
  I strongly don't advise you to upgrade yet is because I'm not sure
but if
  you do you might jump from IE7 to IE9 in which case the latter isn't
fully
  supportive with Jaws until FS brings out a fix for it. Just things
to bare
  in mind. I would hate you to upgrade and find that you jumped from
IE 7 to

9
  with out knowing and then experienced problems. However saying all
this 
you
  might just go from IE 7 to 8 with out any problems. In which case by
all
  means go ahead!
  Good Luck with whatever you decide to do!
  Thanks
  Daniel
