Re: V 18 disappointment

I do agree, they’ve got the blind sewed up with constantly coming up with new versions to profit themselves.

But I tend to think with all internet browsers constantly coming up with more and more graphics and what nots for the sighted crowd, the older versions of JAWS can’t keep up.


I just wish all of these computer/printer/scanner/internet and other companies would just keep everything the same, while still making things better. I guess this can’t be done because it is all about money. But then again; that’s what business is all about.

A royal conundrum, indeed!

I must add to this discussion that I am "still" on JAWS 13 and Windows 7.  Frankly, I have seen nothing really worthwhile in any of the upgrades of either JAWS or Windows since these versions.  Most of the so-called "improvements" in JAWS are nothing more than fixes of things that did not work correctly or the addition of things that should have been there all along; like the mouse announcement thing now (finally) in v. 18, as others have commented.  What a racket indeed : (

I just got the official e-mail announcing Jaws 18. Disappointed! Doesn’t sound like there is anything improved or new that I will use. Won’t upgrade anytime soon!
