Re: Jaws13.0 beta
According to Mr. Damrey in his Podcast, there will be another revision for
JAWS 12 so one would hope that it fixes the bugs and of course will not
include the new features of 13. We'll just have to trust in his word of
honor and wait. If they fix Excel in the last revision of JAWS 12 then that
is some consolation.

But dave jaws 13 is not being sold yet I thought the important thing was to
get that fixed with jaws 12, so that users would not be obliged to buy
jaws13,to get a fix. I am told the uk list has fallen silent for some days I
suspect they think well,we willbe forced to upgrade regardless, is that a
victory? I mean it would have been just to dreadful if the only item
attended to is that whatsit thing where you get baseball results and which
no one in Uk cares about anyway regards dorothy

Just to let you all know, Excel 2007 now works with JAWS 13. And that was my
They did take my favorite keystrokes for reading top 4 and leftmost 4 cells
and give them over to the new Insert+Shift, T table navigation set with a
completely unimaginative set of Alt+1 through 8 keys, so I added my own
keystrokes to these and fixed that problem.
So far JAWS 13 is behaving no worse than JAWS 12 in general situations
overall, and perhaps more responsive.
Again bear in mind that I'm still using XP Pro and the Office 2007 suite.
The Convenient OCR feature is pretty good, although I haven't tried too many
examples of it.
Of course ResearchIt is broken for some of the sites, but that's not a JAWS
Note that I copied over my JAWS 12 Place Markers, Personalized Settings, and
JAWS dictionary files. I *did not* use the merge feature.
And I definitely modified the OCR voice to something less drastic.
Pretty good so far, right out of the box.
I think my theory of odd-numbered versions of JAWS being the best is holding
