Re: MS Word 2010

Does anybody still have Jaws 17? I have long ago stopped using Office 2010, but I'm curious about what Tim said that he could not read the contents of cells in an Excel spreadsheet with Jaws 17, I believe he said he was using Office 2010 on a Windows 10 computer. I wonder if something else is going on or if Jaws 17 really does not read Excel content in this scenario but Jaws 18 does.

 

Regards,

I'm not Brian, but, yes, they will work well together. I am using them on this computer.

Brian,

 

Just to reassure myself and make sure I understand correctly …… Will Windows 10 Pro, Jaws 18 and MS word 2010 work well together without any major issues?

Laura,

          The extended support end date for the Microsoft Office 2010 Service Pack 2 (which all of us should have by now if we have Office 2010, or will have not long after loading a fresh copy) is October 13, 2020.   (See:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search/13615)

           End of support for Office 2010 should have little to nothing to do with whether a screen reader will work with it so long as said screen reader will work under "the old Windows paradigm" meaning if it's compatible with Windows 7 or earlier.

           It is highly unlikely that screen reader support for Windows 7 will end before its sundown date in 2020 and, given the embedded base of Windows 7 and that many will still be using it, it may go after that.  I doubt that the code that supports "the old pre-universal-apps" Windows application programs (termed Desktop Apps under Windows 10) is going to go away for a very, very long time because those programs are not going away any time soon and there are still many that are under development that show no signs of rushing to become an universal app anytime soon.
