        Freedom Scientific Releases JAWS(r) 11 

        Users Praise the Benefits of "Research It" Feature

        (St. Petersburg, Florida, October 19, 2009) - Freedom Scientific
today announced the English release of JAWS version 11, the world's
leading screen reader for visually impaired computer users. This new
release includes features that will expand educational and employment
opportunities for users at all levels. These new features include
Research It, Word Index, a free software DAISY player, and enhancements
specifically for Windows 7, including UI Automation support and improved
ARIA support.

        The new Research It feature lets users quickly access
information for any application and immediately return to what they were
doing. Use just a few keystrokes to look up information such as word
definitions, Wikipedia results, weather conditions, news stories, or
even sports scores. When you have finished reviewing the information,
simply press ESCAPE to return to your current task. An Internet
connection is all that is required to use Research It with JAWS 11.
There is also a very comprehensive Research It Developer's Guide
mAlVb9uNu5yBXI8sgQ==>  that shows how individuals or organizations can
modify Research It to create their own lookups on the Web or even within
their own network for improved on-the-job efficiency.

        For more information, listen to the September FSCast
p2FgDUFBo1_V3khP7jBw1eCglIc3> , where this feature and others are
demonstrated and discussed in detail.

        Beginning with PAC Mate(tm) Omni earlier this year and now with
JAWS 11, Freedom Scientific is pleased to include a free FSReader
software DAISY player for all of our customers. "There is no question
that DAISY books are becoming more and more a part of our everyday
lives," said Eric Damery, Vice President of Software Product Management,
"and having a free reader installed along with our screen reader and
MAGic(r) screen magnification products is a real benefit. We have also
updated all the free Basic Training DAISY books, and they are all now
shipping right on the DVD.

        Hear All the New JAWS 11 Features Demonstrated in FSCast

        Listen to Eric Damery, Product Manager for JAWS, and Jonathan
Mosen, Vice President of Blindness Hardware Product Management, discuss
the latest JAWS 11 enhancements in both the August 2009 FSCast
5BXfz2M5t10-i6i2GA==>  and the September 2009 FSCast
taT54ePfkiJAH-V2Fw==> . The August FSCast covers all the new features,
