Re: Jaws 11

Kamal,

Based on what I read in the features and enhancements, I would agree. These 
seem more like bug fixes and re-fixes to things that used to work, than a 
new plateau. JAWS 10 at least touted their new browser forms navigation and 
their new speech synthesizer selection paradigm.

I'll just hope now that after a couple of beta turns and a couple 
sub-versions of 11 we'll have a stable product once again. I still believe 
that the odd-numbered versions were generally the more stable versions, with 
the possible exception of JAWS 9. Again just an opinion.

Hi all:

In my opinion it is unfortunate that FS did not release this update
as a 10.x version. I know that FS have included some nice
fixes/updates and some new features but i personally don't see
anything that can be considered a major break through in screen
reading technology here. The research It feature for example,
although it is a very handy feature, however, I don't consider this
to be a screen reading technology feature. Also the distribution of
the daisy player software is a nice touch but it does not improve on
Jaws and in any case many of us are using daisy player to listen to
books and so on. I am a loyal customer of FS product and have used
Jaws since version 2.0 and have been since paying for upgrades and
SMAS. i certainly saw so much changes between one release and another
earlier on in the Jaws development. This is only meant as a
constructive criticism and not to slam FS.

Cheers,
