I just posted a new alpha release of the script.  The installer is here <https://github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity/releases/download/rel2.2.0-alpha-2017-08-31/Jaws-Script-for-Audacity_2_2_0-Alpha-2017-08-31.exe>. The source is on the |next| <https://github.com/campg2j003/JAWS-Script-for-Audacity/tree/next> branch.

New in this release:

- Added Quick Setting for controlling announcement of selection positions when arrow keys are pressed.  On functions as before. Off silences position messages for arrow keys that play audio if Motion Preview is on.
- Added ability to preview audio with cursor motion keys.  This is controlled by the Preview Motion Quick Setting.
- Added script ToggleMotionPreview assigned to JAWSKey+p.  This temporarily toggles motion preview on and off and Say Position between All but Arrows and All.
- In the start/end selection fields Shift+Up/DownArrow preview audio at the selection end points.
- Numpad left/right arrow keys with JAWSKey now preview in the track panel and selection bar.  In the track panel and selection bar, scripts SayPrior/NextWord play the preview after the start/before the end position (inside the selection range). Scripts SelectPrior/NextWord preview before the start/after the end position (outside the selection).

Note: The motion previewing capability may require that Audacity is set to the the Full shortcut key binding.

- Added cursor motion and selection keys to short layer.
- Reimplemented speaking of level meters.  The code no longer uses control IDs and will now work when multiple project windows are open.

This was developed with the Aug 6 alpha.

I'm still looking for someone that can tell me how a compile with JAWS 10 goes.

What is the earliest JAWS version you are using?

Feedback/suggestions appreciated!
