Re: Windows 8 with Jaws?


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Listened to the FS Cast. It sounded like there were work-arounds for most of the "issues" with Windows 8.
The FS Cast, however, only touched on Metro Apps, and I remember nothing about supporting gestures for tablets running Windows 8 and, in particular, using Metro Apps.
I heard a podcast from another source implying, at least, some sort of support for gestures.
For those who have tried JAWS with Windows 8, is there any gesture support. I mean gestures like those supported in VoiceOver for the iPhone and iPad.

Joseph,
I'd really be interested in the major differences/ layout and navigation
from using win 7. I'd also like to hear about any other improvements or
otherwise from earlier operating systems. Thanks so much

Hi,
I'm testing Windows 8 with JAWS 14 beta. Anything you'd like to know about
Win8 and JAWS?
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

Are there any users out there who have used Windows 8 with Jaws?
I saw a presentation of a computer that QVC was selling today, that has
Windows 8 installed.
It was an HP laptop, but the description of how Windows 8 functions sounded
more visual than Windows 7 is? This is just my opinion, of course.
Just wondered if anyone has had any experience with the new OS yet and how
well it works with Jaws.
Thanks.

Claudia
