Re: Using Newer Scripts on Older Versions Was: Jaws13.0 beta


Dave...
 

Peter,

On this list we have people who may take your suggestion seriously, and I'm
just helping them possibly avoid screwing up their installation of an
earlier version by experimenting.

Scripts developed for a later version of JAWS usually take advantage of
features that may not be available earlier, and thereby not function at all.
Particularly these experimenters should not be copying over the .jsb or .jss
files.

I don't need to, quite happy with everything. Just a suggestion for those
who really can't upgrade.

Peter,

Still sounds risky, using scripts from a later version. But give it a try,
if you'd like.

For those people who cannot afford to upgrade to JAWS 12 but are having
significant problems with an application and therefore are unable to use the
application.

That sounds very risky, and what's the point? If you've got JAWS 13 running
and it works, why try to apply a "band-aid" to JAWS 12?

Just a thought but for those people having problems such as the issue with
Excel is it worth trying to copy the Excel files from JAWS 13 beta and
pasting them in to 12. Would that work to fix some of the issues?

Bob,

I solved that by using the CardFile view. Then all you do is type the first
few letters and that section comes up.

Lack of first-letter navigation is very likely not a JAWS issue. Take for
example the add/remove programs list in XP. It has never been first-letter
navigation.

Now I understand that in Windows 7 it is. And FS had nothing to do with
that -- it is all Microsoft.

The one thing that I have found that I wish they had fixed is the first
letter search in Outlook 2007 contacts.

Just to let you all know, Excel 2007 now works with JAWS 13. And that was my
biggest complaint.

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
issue.

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
up.
