Re: JAWS 10 public beta posted, and initial impressions

Well doesn't look as if the issue with the folder list in Windows Live Mail is resolved, but it seems to remember the settings for automatically reading messages etc in the berbocity dialogue.

Subject: JAWS 10 public beta posted, and initial impressions

Well, it's here. I've just downloaded, installed and configured it and so far hmmm. It's kind of weird. Obviously it's not done yet, but for some reason, the only way I could get it to actually save all my options and configurations is to change the voices via the global adjustment dialogue, instead of doing it via the new voice profiles option. If I tried to save a voice profile, and after pressing ok, my settings, such as punctuation, speed and pitch weren't saved. However if I did it through the global voice settings dialogue it worked fine. I wanted to start fresh and not introduce any settings from previous versions so I did it all from scratch. As for auto-forms mode, hmm. It's interesting as well. I'm used to being able to arrow past an edit field and read on the page, but of course when you're in forms mode, the focus gets put in the edit box. This is most notable on Google. You can turn it off by pressing numpad slash to turn forms mode off, or turn auto-forms mode off in the config manager under set options... So far, it's very interesting.

I'll send in more reports as I find out stuff.
