Hi.
From what I have found out windows 10 already works with Jaws 16 and Jaws 17
will probably just increase accessibility

Question is though, is Edge usable? I suppose we'll just have to wait and
see.
Incidentally, if I'm not mistaken, Window-eyes is already equipped to
work with Windows 10.

Hi,
Yes, the default browser will be the new edge browser, but, I believe you
can still choose to use internet explorer instead.
The advice from the FS to await for a while before upgrading to win 10 as
there are some accessibility bugs that needs to be ironed-out. Although I
think jaws 16 update will enable us to use win 10 somewhat, the version 17
will have much better experience I think.


Thank you
Ali

I wonder if they have delivered on their threat/promise to replace Internet
Explorer with a new browser..
Would it be too much to hope for the return of the old style Windows
Explorer? <smile>

All best, Matt

Hello Robin,

I wonder if they fixed the 64 bit version but not the 32 bit, mine is
64 bit and it is working fine so far.

Hi, I am so annoyed, I went to the FS site and downloaded the latest
version.... I now have that stupid [no disrespect to my British
neighbours] English voice chipping in all the time that I don't want. I
just want the old default american english Reed, not this plastic stuff
that I find hard to understand.

JAWS 16.0.3048 32-bit English - June 2015

Sigh, I am going to have to do a system restore to get rid of this rubbish.

Please tell me where you saw the link and download?

Robin

Thanks for the tip off about the voice fix, I checked on the FS site
and sure enough, the fix is mentioned so I downloaded the latest
version and I have all the right voices.

Hello Folks.


I've just picked up a suggestion on my PC to get Windows 10. Didn't
know it was out already.



Could anyone please tell me if it's better than Windows 8 which I
steered clear of. Also, does Jaws 16 support it?



As an extra, I'm glad to say FS have now got rid of that awful voice.



Best wishes,



Joan.
