RE: JAWS 10

For being an SMA upgrade, I would have liked to seen a lot more existing
issues addressed and more new featured introduced. I can't see myself using
the new auto forms feature for example and if anything else, I would imagine
finding it to be more of an annoyance. I'm aware that this particular
feature isn't necessarly geared towards me as a reasonabl experienced Jaws
user, but since it's mentioned as a main feature in the upgrade, I just
can't get myself worked up about it.

The dictionary manager and voice profiles are interesting since I use the
English, Spanish and German languages offered in Jaws, but really, I would
have liked to seen the ability to have more entries in the dictionary
manager expanded more than the current 1000 as well. The RealSpeak voices
sound much nicer than the eloquence ones, but not being able to get the
speach rate with RealSpeak to speak faster makes me not want to use them for
more than a short period of time.

I don't want to sound like a downer, but again, for being a full SMA upgrade
and considering what the SMA costs, and the update being a full jump from
9.0 to 10.0 I am rather underwhelmed.

Again, hopefully as the beta evolves, more features will be announced?


Just my two scents.

Well, I also listened to the podcast, and to me, the new features of JAWS 
10 are nothing to get all excited about.  The auto forms mode is nice, but 
not absolutely necessary.  And the voice profiles feature is just a gimmick.
