Subject: [VICUG-L] Updated text documentation for JAWS 13 public beta


From the archive
http://EmpowermentZone.com/jfw13doc.zip

This is a comprehensive set of text documentation for the JAWS 13.0 screen
reader from
http://FreedomScientific.com

Help files in .chm format were converted to structured text format. This format has simple conventions that support additional navigation options
over plain text.  For example, the EdSharp editor, available at
http://EmpowermentZone.com/edsetup.exe

includes hotkeys such as Control+PageDown or Control+PageUp to move forward or backward among topical sections in such a document. Pressing F6 on a topic name in the table of contents goes to the corresponding section in the body. Shift+F6 returns to the table of contents from the body. Control+F6 searches for a section based on text in its topic name.
Alt+F6 searches for the next match.

The following 38 files are included in the archive:

At least two files are targeted toward beginning script writers: the Basics of Scripting tutorial (Basics_of_Scripting.txt) and the original scripting manual called "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Writing JAWS Scripts, But Didn't Know Whom to Ask" (ScriptingManual.txt). Advanced scripters may appreciate the reference manual for the Freedom Scientific Developer Network (fsdn.txt). They may also value the analysis of differences between the scripting languages of JAWS 12 and 13. 109 functions and 28 scripts are documented, respectively, in the files
JAWS 13 Updated Functions.txt
and
JAWS 13 Updated Scripts.txt

A function or script was considered updated if it is either new in JAWS
13, or its documentation has changed since JAWS 12.
