Re: JAWS saying the thing that is not


Just another in a long list of things that get worse with each new
release of Jaws. I've had this problem for several versions and it is worse
with some programs than others. It is much worse in version 12, don't know
about 13.

Yes once or twice a rnib volunteer came to visit me, he is now retired and
in spain., he was good on the practical side, he once said to me"i have
been here for 2 hours and Jaws has lied about everything it was true

I think my first JFW was 1.21, after some years with JAWS and DOS. I really
do believe, though, that JFW is reading with much less accuracy/clarity than
it used to.

Hi Ann, With the JAWS 13 Beta and XP Home, in Word 7 documents it
often reads text on single lines twice with a pattern I have not yet
Additionally, it often jumps to the bottom of messages in Outlook
Express when a message is opened.
Lastly, Research It still reports current temperatures in Celsius
although I did send in a Bug Report prior to the recent announced repairs.
F S may also be indicated in the rain suspension of the Yankees game
last night but I'm reserving judgment on this for the moment. Bumping
along with JAWS since 2.0, Mitch

Maybe I'm just getting cranky---a definite possibility--but I find
myself saying more and more often to my students, "JAWS is lying to you."

1. When opening a new document or application, JAWS often rereads the
previous screen before reading the screen it just opened. To a newby,
this is way confusing.

2. When reading dates, JAWS speaks a 'th' or 'st' or 'rd' after the
date, even though it isn't there. It is important to me to know what
I wrote, not what JAWS thinks I want to hear.

3. When working with an outline in Word 2010, JAWS often but not
consistently reports the line I just pressed enter on, and not the new
line with the outline number. So when I'm planning a party--my
favorite outline--it says "2. send invitations' and not '3', which is
where the cursor is.

I don't think I'm imagining this. Is anyone else having these kinds
of issues???
