Re: Java update question

Accept the update. The JAB is no longer a part of the screenreader. It's built in to Java itself nowadays. If you installed it when you first installed Java and it needs updating, it will do it. I have heard nothing bad about Java since version 7, although I still can't get it to do anything useful on my own systems, but that's probably more a Steve Matzura problem than anything else. (smile).

I too get a Java update notification. But, I have been reluctant to do it
because I do not know how it will handle the Java Access Bridge.  Does
anyone know if the update will properly update the JAB?  I use Windows 7 Pro
64 bit under JAWS 15.

Hi David,

When Java is ready to update I find it in the "System Tray." Press JAWS-key
+ F11 and arrow up and down. Hopefully you will find it there.

Greetings all:

Jaws keeps telling me that a new version of "Java" is ready to be installed,

and to do this "click here" which I  obviously can't see.  When this
notification is announced again what is the best method to locate the "here"

button to commence the download/install?

Sincerely yours,

David S. Pearson
