Re: JAWS 18 and Calculator

I have JAWS 18, latest update. I also have Windows 10 and
just press the Windows Key and then C - VOILA, up comes
calculator. I use the qwerty numbers and symbols - works
like a charm, only way to go to figure my Visa figures.
They're not on my spread sheet right now.

Bye for now,

I saw a number of posts on this list earlier about the
calculator. Indeed, in Windows 10, it is hidden. With a
little sighted assistance, however, we found it and pinned
it to the task bar, which was a good solution.

And, a huge thanks to the discussion about using the Windows
Key and numbers keys to jump to applications. I had
forgotten about those commands entirely. Now, I use them
all the time. They are fantastic!

Well, I installed JAWS 18 yesterday. ALAS! The calculator
that worked so well in JAWS 17 appears to be completely
broken in JAWS 18 or, if not broken, is implemented so badly
as to be useless.

It is so good to be able to keep old versions of JAWS around
so that when Freedom Scientific screws up, as they did with
calculator, one can go back to a prior version. The
calculator works great in JAWS 17. It seems unusable in
JAWS 18.
