Re: becoming a jaws beta tester


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Cy, I had good reason to be skeptical, but this version is a winner. I
am having certain problems at the office, compounded by the fact that it
may be hard for our software developers to work with Freedom Scientific,
but these are apps from Hell anyway under the best of circumstances.
It's worth the ride this time--even Access works again. Talk about a
long beta cycle!

Dave,
First three months? Man, are you optimistic. (LOLLOLLOL)
Did they ever get 12 reasonably clean?
I am still on 11 and wonder how 13 is for real.
I am trying to decide if I really want to renew my SMA or is it just
going
to be waste of money - again?
Cy

RJ,

Everyone is a beta tester for at least the first 3 months of a new
release.

Okay, I'm cynical. Actually the new version does pre-release about a
month
in advance and everyone is welcome to download and report bugs. However
given the short time I really don't think those bug reports ever make it
to
the first release. I suspect that these bugs get fixed in the succeeding

monthly updates. Okay, cynical again, but not quite so much, eh?

Other than that if you want to be a Beta tester for real, you need to
contact FS directly and let them know you're interested. Then be
prepared to

devote a lot of time to wringing out as many quirks as possible, with as

many applications as possible, in as many operating environments as
possible

during the testing cycles, and report every single thing you find that
either works or does not work.

If I ever retire and have nothing to do, I'll volunteer.
