Re: Latest Jaws and some issues
They still haven't fixed that bug introduced in the prior version updatetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
with Jaws not announcing unread messages in Outlook 2010. Now I'm noticing
too that Jaws will say "zero items" when going through messages also in
Outlook 2010. Mostly at the end of every email and sometimes at the
beginning and then nothing else is read as far as header information goes.

Subject: Re: Latest Jaws and some issues
I've certainly noticed some issues with FF and the latest jaws update:
I don't use tabs if I can help it, and have my homepage set to blank, so FF
loads to an empty tab set for me. With prior jaws versions I used to be able
to type right away, that the cursor was in the address bar. Now I am pretty
sure the cursor is actually still in the address bar, but it is as if the
scripts don't quite detect that until I do something else (like alt tab away
from FF then back, or tab to the search bar etc) As an example, if I start
a FF window and type 'g'
before it would begin the completion process and come up with 'gmail'
with the latest jaws update the g triggers the virtual document crawl
looking for a graphic (which it of course does not find)..
Also, I've noticed that there seem to be problems detecting the active
document, I will right click select open in a new window, immediately hit
alt-tab to go back to the source page and jaws will often think the new
window is active, rather than the source window.
I have also encountered cases where I switch away from FF to some other
program and jaws does not detect that Firefox is no longer the active
program (my FF voice settings remain active, for example). To the point
that if I hit jaws + ctrl +s the program that would be alters is firefox
even though some other program had focus.
