Hi, it's interesting that these JAWS updates are becoming like Windows updates, in that they will start to appear as frequent as once a month. Perhaps they could do a patch Tuesday or something, lol. Seriously, I think FS may be finally listening to us, in that they are fixing bugs as they go along and fixing updates more regularly.

I've just been asked by Freedom to post the following. George All, We are set to release an update for all JAWS 11 English version customers later this afternoon. The new version will be 11.0.1461 and below, I have included the changes in this June 2010 update. There is something new I would like to point out, which is different from all updates we have done in the past. This new update will only be found during check for updates, if the JAWS user is currently running build 1447 already (this was the build we posted in May 2010). If they have an earlier version of JAWS 11 (such as build 756 released back in January) and they check for updates from the JAWS Help Menu, they will be getting the May release of 1447. After installing that update, if they check for updates again, JAWS will then locate and download a much smaller update (the new build 1461). From now on, this will be what we try to do in an effort to post more frequent updates that are smaller in size. Provided you check once a month or so, you will be able to stay current. One other thing to point out, when a new update is released, we will also be making that new build, the new full download on the web so at any time, you can always just download the current full version and install it over top of the currently installed version and you will have the latest. That could be faster if you have not been staying current over the last 4 to 6 months. The new changes included in 11.0.1461 build: Enhancements in JAWS 11.0.1461 (June 2010) The following is a list of items addressed or added between the final JAWS 11.0.1447 release and the JAWS 11.0.1461 posting. All enhancements since the initial public beta release are included in this release. JAWS * Resolved an issue where letters were lost when using Typing Mode with a Focus braille display. * Resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS was announcing large negative values in combo boxes. * JAWS no longer duplicates information that is typed into form edit fields. * Resolved issues and improved performance with the Convert Currency and MLB Scores lookup sources in Research It. Word and Outlook * Addressed an issue reported by The Lighthouse of Houston related to the spell checker not working as expected when using a third party add-in with Word. * When in a table in a Word document, the INSERT+TAB keystroke correctly announces the cell content along with column and row title. * The default setting for graphics detection in all versions of Word and Outlook 2007 or later is set to Labeled by default. This means that JAWS announces alt text (if available) and image dimensions. * Resolved an issue where tutor messages were spoken before relevant information when using the ARROW Keys to read the next line or previous line in an Outlook 2010 e-mail message. This fix also resolves an issue where tutor messages were spoken with each press of an ARROW Key when moving through a message folder. * JAWS no longer announces an unknown function call error when Outlook 2003 is configured to request a user name and password before launching. Lotus Notes * Resolved two issues with Lotus Notes(r). JAWS now announces labels for the date and time fields in a calendar entry. Also, the ALT+DOWN ARROW keystroke now opens the combo box for date and time fields. * Resolved an issue with Lotus(r) Sametime(r) software where JAWS was not reading chat history when using the ARROW Keys. * The Lotus Notes topic in the JAWS help file has been updated to include the latest application functionality and keystrokes.
