Are you using the Ctrl+shift+j to launch? only one can be set as such. If so, 
start using the first-letter navigation on the desktop to launch the other 
JAWS. I set JAWS 12 to be #JAWS 12 and JAWS 11 to JAWS 11. Then I can Press the 
pound sign to find JAWS 12 without speech, and the letter j to find JAWS 11 
without speech.

    I'm flirting with the idea of reverting to 10, then jumping back to 12.  
After all, 10 was the last time Access worked.  I filed a beta report, and 
mentioned that strategy; let's see what I get back.  Sounds like a weekend 
project to me.

    Ted,

     

    I agree with both your points, and unfortunately don't have any idea on how 
to help you with MS-Access.

     

    Yes, Text Analyzer could be really nice.

      The whole thing was pretty smooth.  I was underwhelmed by the virtual 
ribbon, and turned it off. However, I noticed that 12's handling of the 
Microsoft ribbon is better than 10-11's.  Unfortunately, Access still doesn't 
work.  I'd darn near give a week's pay to know what broke between 10 and 11; 
why only this one application, and what is the hardware-software interaction on 
my particular machine?

       

      The Big sleeper here may be Text Analyzer.  For those of us who write, 
this could be a real bonus.

      Ted,

       

      This one is pretty benign. And yes, they can coexist so you can switch 
back/forth. I recommend that you make sure you have your current JAWS shortcut 
set to a hotkey like Ctrl+Shift+J to make it easier to launch.

       

      Also note that after you install the JAWS 12 Beta, it will turn off the 
auto launch of your current JAWS, so make sure you set that back before 
rebooting.

        I've never fooled with one of these before.  If I decide to install, I 
gather from the Web site that it will coexist with JAWS 11, and will, 
presumably, run until the commercial product is available.  Anything I need to 
know about the installation or uninstallation process?  Given all the problems 
with 11, I'm partly hopeful, and more than a little gun shy.
