Re: Jaws13.0 beta

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)

Dave, I don't usually do betas (and certainly not at my office), but am
really looking forward to the official release of 13, something I
wouldn't have said a month ago. To you and the other listers, I had a
totally unexpected family emergency throughout much of August, and all
of September, and never had a chance to suspend my subscription. It's
been a real hassle catching up, but the time investment was worth it.

Gosh, Ted! That was a month ago. I don't use MS-Access so I can't check
that for you. Why not download the beta (it's already in the 3rd
and try it out for yourself?

When I wrote this message a month ago I was still on XP Pro. Now I'm on
Windows 7 32-bit and a new Latitude E6520. JAWS 13 continues to be more
solid than JAWS 12, so I'm continuing to believe that only odd-numbered
versions of JAWS are worth owning.

How about Access 2007 under XP?

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
and give them over to the new Insert+Shift, T table navigation set with
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

The Convenient OCR feature is pretty good, although I haven't tried too
examples of it.

Of course ResearchIt is broken for some of the sites, but that's not a

Note that I copied over my JAWS 12 Place Markers, Personalized Settings,
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
