Re: Should I upgrade to Jaws 11?

Cy,

"For that matter, Excel 2007 is also a complete nightmare."

What do you mean?

  Ted,

  I really can not say that Outlook 2007 is significantly worse that Word 2007 
with JAWS 11.

  I think a whole lot of the problem is simply getting used to the way both 
expect you to communicate with them. 

  For that matter, Excel 2007 is also a complete nightmare.

  Sounds more and more as if Outlook 2007 simply sucks with speech-rather a 
shame, given the suite's overall fine performance.  I've gotten some feedback 
indicating that some of my sighted colleagues aren't exactly thrilled with it 
either.

  Same here from me using Outlook 2007. I think that JAWS in general has 
problems with Outlook 2007, as even back to JAWS 9 I have had issues with the 
Outlook 2007 calendar sometimes crashing.

   

  The crashing of the calendar continues with JAWS 11 and in addition, JAWS 11 
is very fragile when creating a new message or replying to messages.  I have 
had several crash sessions. I also note that the spell-checker in Outlook 2007 
is very hesitant and slow, much more so than JAWS 9.

   

  All said, JAWS 11 is apparently more unstable with Outlook 2007 than with any 
other application.

   

  BTW, using 11.0.1430.

    Hi,

    I'm using Jaws 11 on my Dell home PC running XP Pro and on my Toshiba 
laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium.  In both cases, I've got pplenty of 
processor power and lots of RAM. Jaws 11 is running just fine.  

     

    On the other hand, I am experiencing problems on my work machine running XP 
Pro.  It's a Gateway with a slower processor and only a gig of RAM. On this 
machine, Jaws gets sluggish or goes quiet while I'm in Word or Outlook 2007. I 
don't necessarily blame it on JAWS 11, though. I think the Office 2007 and JAWS 
11 combination is more than that system can comfortably handle. 

     

    Tom
