Re: Bug in eloquence for JAWS, hhope this helps a few people

Chris,

Did you experience this for yourself?  Or just take the word of someone who 
told 
you that it can be done.  The idea that Jaws can be made to crash by reversing 
two vowels is beyond ridiculous.
I tried it and nothing happened.  Unless it only works in certain situations, 
like live chat.  Sounds like a hoax to me.  You can't crash Jaws with text. 
It's ludicrous.  Jack

Subject: Bug in eloquence for JAWS, hhope this helps a few people


Hi all

Recently I found out that if someone types the word, "seasure", but
reverses the A, and the E, JAWS will crash.  I was on the Zone, a popular
game and chat site and some people were talking about it and some people
were even doing it to be mean, and crash some people's JAWS. I should point
out that Eloquence seems to be the only synth that has this bug, yet
another reason why I absolutely love my dectalk. It's immune to this type
of thing. I do hope FS comes out with a fix for this sometime, because if
you're going to have people who can exploit the bug, people's JAWS will
keep crashing and it's really going to be annoying.  I just thought I would
be a good guy and let some folks know why this was happening, if it was at all.
The only fixes right now are use a hardware synth, or just set up a hotkey
and if it crashes, just keep restarting it. and if you have someone on msn
who thinks it's cute to do that, block them or something. lol
Hope this helps a few people.
