Hi Lissie,

Well, I also have had those darned stalls. However, my system fan doesn't come on when it happens.

So far, I have opened and edited a book .rtf file that is over 1300 pages. Rather large and so far no stalls and it seems to be much quicker in response.

I like you hope they release this thing for real very soon.

Dear Dan,

Is Jaws 8 running slowly with your MS office equivalent to the frequent stalls I get with MS office word, 2003. I get the fine points of computer labeling so confused. I've written to the list before about the periodic frantic whirring of my computer's fan accompanied by my keys being unable to work and jaws remaining silent when I type things in word.. This has broken up my validating and slowed me down so much. While I wait for the fan to quiet which signals that the computer will work again, I read e-mail or visit the web which don't have these stalls. Oh, and The computer allows me to read large Word documents, it just can't tolerate much writing or deleting.

I've mentioned this problem to the list before and tried their suggestions of defragging and disk clean up. I've also tried reinstalling or just restarting jaws, but nothing has helped. To continue validating I've had to be resigned to stopping and starting. The more I change the book I'm validating as in globally replacing flarnes with flames, or inserting page numbers, the more often the computer acts overburdened. The problem is at its worst with long books, but short books suffer the same symptoms, just a little less often. Jaws doesn't mind how much I type in Outlook express.

Could it be that with JAWS 9 I'll be able to compose documents and validate, including editing scannos in word at a steady, uninterrupted pace. If so, let the Beta process find all the glitches in advance and may JAWS 9 be made available soon!

If you are testing the update and need a really long file to practice on, you can experiment with my 870 big page project, Mary Queen of Scots. Stalls and all, I did pass the midpoint by a hair today and am ready to start page 447. I must find out if Mary's sick and crazed husband, Darnley, succeeds in blowing himself and Mary to smithereens so they can lead a better life in Heaven!

Thanks for sharing the great JAWS news with us. I'd be very interested in hearing about your progress and the specific improvements we can look forward to.

Always with love,

Lissi

Hi,

As the subject line states it is Jaws 9.0 beta. This means it isn't a full release yet and may still have some problems. I have had some major issues with Jaws 8 running very slowly on my system with MS Office and so I thought I'd let everyone know that this release will be fixing that. ----- Original Message ----- From: "maithe007" <maithe007@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

WOW!

I am very impressed. The Jaws team seems to have gotten it very right this time. Jaws and MS Office 2003 on my system works very very well. It performs more quickly than I have ever seen.

I am definitely looking forward to the full release of this version of Jaws.
