Van Lant, Robin
I also appreciated your post. I agree that there were features in Window Eyes that I thought would get migrated into JAWS. The biggest thing I still miss from WE is the way that mouse keys worked. I just can’t seem to get the hang of the JAWS cursor to accomplish what I did so easily with numpad navigation of the mouse. Thanks for your thoughtful post.

Thanks for your comments, Adrian.
Regarding progress tones I think that it should be a four-way toggle with options for speech, sounds, speech and sounds along with no feedback. JAWS could default to having progress reports being provided as speech only, keeping it to the long-standing default setting.
As for the potential for hotkey conflicts I do see what you mean. At one point I had versions for JAWS 16, 17, 18, 2018 and 2019 on my desktop. I had different hotkeys assigned to each of them, with ctrl+alt+J for whatever the current version was at that time. When a new version number was released, such as JAWS 2020, I did need to do a bit of juggling to keep things straight and users running multiple versions would need to keep track of which keys were being used for specific versions and might have to do a bit of shuffling, when required.
