Re: What? Windows 8?

On the FSCast, they make the point that they've worked with MS to
incorporate keyboard commands and to maintain the JAWS cursor. The two
limitations I recall are that first-letter navigation will no longer work,
at least in what we know as the start menu, and JAWS cursor will no longer
work in unrestricted mode. The JAWS cursor's range will be limited to the
application you're in. (I hope I recall correctly.)

I meant to mention that Windows 8 is scheduled for release on October 26,
and JAWS 14 is planned for release in late October.

Windows 8 may ve interesting. I listened to a Podcast through iBlink Radio
(iPhone App) put out by the NVDA folks.
It looks like Windows 8 will have touch screen gesture type functionality as
well as support for little programs, like Apps on the iPhone, that connect
to the Web but do not require the browser as is typically the case in
Windows today.
If JAWS 14 is fully supporting all that new Windows 8 stuff, the things
broken in JAWS 13 will probably just stay broken.

I guess we will just have to wait. I'm content with JAWS 12, even though I
have (and occasionally have to use) that train wreck called JAWS 13.

Oh, good grief.

I'm working on getting a new computer right now, which will have Windows
7...

Now, they are putting out an 8.

At least, my Jaws is current, for whatever that is worth.

<sigh>

Crystal, who is never up to speed
