Re: J2018 Build Update 1811.30 + What's New


Hi Shirley,


Not sure if you are using Jaws 2018 as your primary screenreader or if you also have Jaws 2019, but just as a heads up when you get the new Windows 10 update which was just released there are apparently a few things like the new emoji panel which won’t work correctly with Jaws 2018 any more. My assumption is that as time goes by and we get the fall update and going forward more and more issues may arise with Jaws 2018 and one may as well start thinking about upgrading to Jaws 2019 especially since you then also get features like picture smart which as Jaws Convenient OCR is pretty brilliant.

Thanks, Mike. I just updated. Wasn’t sure what the changes were but figured I should do it.
