HI,
AFter there were several good messages about the need for Access 32, we got the usual comment that we should shut upand settle forwhat will "not" allow elder ands ome younger with double hearing loss (even mild) and vision loss to use a screen reader.

This is  important.

So I answered this iditot....

Hi,
I spent one entire month.
At thistime, there is no way to get  a version of Access 32 that will work

I will definitely give this a try, and thank you very much. . .

Proves there is an issue with the suit, seems to me, after all, and quite small of a so-called "leader" in screen readers, tiny and irresponsible and purely childish.

Curtis,
I went round and round with FS when they broke support for the version of DEC Access32 purchased from GW Micro in the JFW 11 Final Release. It worked all the way through the Public Beta of JFW 11 and in all previous versions of JFW. They never admitted to doing anything to break this support. I even wrote to Eric Damery, and he put me in touch with the JFW development team. That didn't do any good either. Even after I explained that this synthesizer had been working on my XP Home system for 5 years, they wanted to blame it on the GW Micro installation. They also wanted me to help them obtain a license for the synthesizer because they claimed they didn't own it. Of course, no licenses are available now from GW Micro.

Now for the good news. I am still using DEC Access32 with both JFW 11 and 12. I'm not guarantying this method will work for anyone else. I have DEC Access32 set to be my Default synthesizer. Unfortunately, this results in Eloquence doing all the talking. By experimentation, I found that I could open Default.jcf in my User Settings folder and enter 4 into the Active equals line instead of the 5 that JFW uses for the DEC Access32 profile. I was never able to figure out why this works, but it does for me. The drawback to this work-around is that if I make any changes in the Voice Profile, my entry of 4 is replaced with 5 again, and I have to perform the replacement once more.

You can try this work-around for yourself, but I can't provide any further help than I have provided here. I would be interested to know though if it works for you.

Jaws 12? and why has FS given up support for Dec_access32 where it just will not either work or if it does at all, it stops immediately. That is what eleven did, and in tweleve, It will not even begin to work.

(xp of course). I am aware that Vista and Windows 7 cannot use Dec_access32, but us XP users it works fine. JFW 10 has no problem with it, but not 11 or 12.
