GW Micro is proud to announce the official release of Window-Eyes 7.0.  The
maturity of Window-Eyes has reached unprecedented levels in this latest

The addition of scripting support provides users with the tools to enhance
the accessibility and usability of third party applications, the operating
system, and even Window-Eyes itself. GW Micro has always stood by the
statement that Window-Eyes does not include complicated and proprietary
scripting support, and that statement remains true with Window-Eyes 7.0.
Instead, the addition of an industry standard scripting interface using
tools that already exist in the Windows operating system allows users new to
scripting, seasoned programmers, and everyone in between to take full
advantage of this powerful new feature without getting bogged down in a
complex and rigid programming environment. Users not interested in creating
scripts can still take advantage of scripts written by other users through
an intuitive script management system. 

GW Micro is also proud to offer a centralized script repository where both
script users and script developers can gather to distribute and discuss
Window-Eyes scripts. More information can be found at

Window-Eyes 7.0 contains several other features, including many Browse Mode
enhancements, the inclusion of a new Eloquence synthesizer, support for both
Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 8, and overall increased speed and
stability. Window-Eyes 7.0 is fully Unicode compliant, allowing for more
localization options for virtually any language. In addition, Window-Eyes
7.0 is the first screen reader to provide support for iTunes 8, including
access to the Apple iTunes store. 

Thank you to everyone involved in the public beta cycle. Window-Eyes
continues to lead the way in adaptive technology because of the dedication
of our customers.
