Re: JAWS getting better or worse!

Hi all.
Yes I love JAWS versions 10 and 12, as well as earlier versions. I am using 12 on my Windows 7 machines, and so far no major problems. One brilliant factor of 10 was its JAWS Tandem feature. Two brilliant things about JAWS 12 is *better* support for Windows 7 compared to even 11, Virtual Ribbon Menu and Settings Centre. So that's not two, that's three! Smiles.
Take care.

any day of the week. I yet haven't gotten any major problems (also, keep
in mind that a major problem for me is a problem that 1, I can't resolve
myself and 2, a problem that takes more than 10 minutes to resolve) and
with XP I had a major problem almost weekly. One thing I must add is
that jaws 10 maybe my favorite version just because it introduced so
many great features and it was so responsive and it also didn't gave me
any problems. However, jaws 12 is following on that line. It only needs
a few tweeks here and there and it will soon take jaws 10 right out of
my favorite space. By the way, my favorite version of openbook is the
courrent 9 and my favorite version of office was 2003 (I really think
that no one will disagree with me on that last one, hahahaha).

Subject: JAWS getting better or worse!

Dear Dorothy, and List Members,
I did not want to give any of you fine folks the impression I am a
cave man, and just using a old Gateway machine which I purchased in
early 1999, which runs Windows 98 (first Edition) JAWS 5 and I think
Open Book 6, but I also have a Dell with XP-Home with JAWS 11 latest
updates, and Open Book 7.02.

The point here especially for Dave is that things have not gotten
better for Blind computer users, Microsoft Windows users, nor JAWS
users, they have gotten worse, as I have not had a single problem with
my old computer's configuration for 11 years.

Can any say that about what they are using right now, with JAWS 12,
Windows 7?

Not I!!
LOL!

it was interesting, and I think another list member met him as well I
cannot spell his name but something like John fiorant,no but I will
find it he is retired and seems to have known everyone. the list can
be a bit stuffy at times, interesting seeing how many are using dell
computers, having had dreadful service and a Drive failure plus fact
when engineer came he put in another faulty western digital, in all I
have had to pay a local engineer a great deal to set it up again,then
heard Dell made big profits and are pulling out of Ireland now the
Irish economy is sinking, I have a good VIP friend in Herefordshire
who once said tome 7, and a prior viglen XP desktop "pack them up and
find a courier and send to me and I will do a rebuild, well of the
viglen he knew,the engineers were making a mess of things, re vintage
computers, the maker of your windows 98, must have been good, my late
friend who loved his windows 98 had his pc custom made by a local
small 2 man business.regarding booths current dell desktop sorry I
have a broken shoulder and typing is very hard, I was thinking like
some cars, they get a good name and on usa I think a song was sung
about Chevrolet57----- Original Message ----- From: "Alan Dicey"

Hello Dave,
I apoligize if my message was not apropiate for the list, but I
thought the person said he had been using JAWS since the 1980's, and
when I met Ted Henter, in late 1990, almost 1991, he was still
developing JAWS.
It had not been released yet!

Thank you!

Dear Friends,
Well, I met Ted Henter in November 1990 when he came to a Blind
Computer
Users Group I had founded here in Miami.
He basically came to say he was developing a Screen Reading software.

I must tell you, I did not take him very serious, nor did I think
many of
the nearly 30 attendents did

I actually chuckled to myself of course, when he took the speakers
stand and
started his presentation, "How does this guy think he can go up
against
Digital Equipment Company, DEC Talk, the IBM Screen Reader, Giant
corporations that could throw as much money into their Screen reading
software programs as they cared to".

I had not a clue that he was on to something fantastic!
I remember him as a very kind soft spoken, cordial gentleman.
I am so glad it worked out for him, and us!

Hello Bob!

Welcome to the list. Since the 1980s? What version of JAWS are you
currently
using? Some of us are using JAWS 12 on various platforms and have
noticed
some vagaries in operation. What's your experience?
