Freedom Scientific Releases JAWS 18
Interoperability with Upcoming ZoomText 11, Vocalizer Expressive
2.2, Migration Feature, and Talking Mouse
(St. Petersburg, Florida - October 31, 2016) - Freedom
Scientific today announced the release of version 18 of JAWS®
for Windows, the world's premier screen reading software.
Significant new features include:
- Greatly improved interoperability with the upcoming release of
- Support for Nuances Vocalizer Expressive 2.2 synthesizer,
adding voices and new language support in Croatia and India
- Migration feature to assist users moving settings from version
to version and computer to computer
- Talking Mouse, to help especially when using JAWS with either
ZoomText 11 or MAGic 13.1 and above
With the recent addition of AiSquared to the VFO family several
months ago, a priority for JAWS 18 and the new ZoomText 11
release was interoperability between the two products.
Helping our customers who install and use both products at the
same time is a priority now, as we strive to make sure the users
of ZoomText can now experience the same benefit our MAGic
customers have experienced for years when running alongside JAWS.
Synchronized visual tracking on the web as JAWS navigation and
reading is happening is a real plus says Eric Damery, Vice
President of Software Product Management. Add the new migration
tool, and JAWS users will find the instant access to their JAWS
17 settings, after installing JAWS 18, making this one of the
smoothest annual upgrades yet.
The JAWS 18 upgrade is a Software Maintenance Agreement (SMA)
release and can be downloaded as either a 32- or 64-bit version
from the JAWS downloads web page. English, German, French,
Spanish, Dutch, and French Canadian have all posted
simultaneously and DVD shipments to SMA holders and new product
customers will commence within a week.

Happy Hallow's Eve, here's our next installment of a bug-riddled piece of
access software. Once you've kicked the tires on it for a few months, and
users tell us what's not working we'll actually fix some of the holes we
left in it. LOL
