Re: JAWS 7.1 release is now posted

Debbie, odd thing is that when I go to check for updates, I'm told I am 
running the latest Jaws version. I tried twenty minutes ago in fact. My 
understanding is that you are supposed to be able to download and install 
the final release when checking for updates. But perhaps not so I'll just go 
and download it from the freedom site. But again knowing me I'll try again, 
and the install will work flawlessly.

Subject: Fw: JAWS 7.1 release is now posted


All,
Both the ILM release version and the Demo version of 7.1 are now posted
on the Web site. I have also included the list of Fixes from the What's
New page that went in between the final beta and final release. Regards,
Eric Damery


Fixes in the Final Release Version


The release version of JAWS 7.10 was made available on Thursday, June

select text properly.
