Just a note, many of us would appreciate if you only sent plain text

Notable fixes include reviewing text in<br>Edit Controls and the Address Bar as well as a possible loss of speech and braille output.<br>• Added a new JAWS Settings Center option called &quot;Skip Blank Lines While Navigating&quot; which is on by default when reading web pages and PDF documents. This<br>feature helps make reading more efficient as JAWS and Fusion ignores blank lines as you navigate using UP and DOWN ARROW. For those who prefer to hear<br>blank lines while navigating, open Settings Center (INSERT+6) and clear this check box. You can find this new option in the Web / HTML / PDF group under<br>Reading.<br>• Changed the Highlight Tracking used in JAWS when navigating web pages or PDF documents with the Virtual Cursor from a Green Block to a Red Box to match<br>ZoomText and Fusion. To further customize the settings used for visually highlighting text as you navigate, open Settings Center and expand the Visual<br>Tracking group.<br>• When reading comments in Word documents, JAWS now also reads any reply comments. For instance, if you are focused on a comment that contains a reply,<br>pressing ALT+SHIFT+APOSTROPHE now reads both the original comment followed by the reply.<br>• When using Say All (INSERT+DOWN ARROW) to read a book in the Kindle for PC application, resolved a customer reported issue where JAWS or Fusion would<br>repeat the last line after reaching the end.<br>• Added a new Quick Settings option called &quot;Blank Cell Announcement&quot; for JAWS and Fusion that is available when using Excel. By default, when you encounter<br>empty cells as you navigate spreadsheets, you hear &quot;blank&quot; followed by the cell coordinates. Turn off this option if you only want to hear the coordinates<br>of empty cells, making speech less verbose as you navigate.<br>• Removed the &quot;Microsoft Edge Browser Support&quot; option from JAWS Settings Center as it is no longer needed. This control was required in order to use the<br>original Edge browser that is being removed from Windows 10 by Microsoft and replaced by the new Chromium version of Edge released in January 2020.<br>• Added the ability for JAWS and Fusion to properly recognize and report both Column Span and Row Span info in HTML tables where information might span<br>over 2 or more cells.<br>• For JAWS installations licensed using one of the new portal licenses that is tied to an email address, the status line of the JAWS window now only displays<br>the expiration date for the license. The About dialog box will display additional license information including the users email Address, expiration date,<br>and the serial number.<br>• Resolved a reported issue where a customer was not able to properly migrate settings from an earlier version.<br>• Addressed an issue where typing Contracted Braille very quickly using a Braille keyboard would sometimes cause text to appear in gibberish. This was<br>observed primarily when typing in Office applications and when exporting text from the Scratchpad on Focus displays into an open Office document.<br>• Resolved a long standing issue where attempting to select and delete multiple words in a row using a Braille keyboard was not working as expected in<br>Word and Outlook.<br>• When typing into a Word document using Contracted Braille, resolved an issue where immediately backspacing over a word and typing a replacement word<br>would result in duplicate text on the current line.<br>• Added support for 3 African Languages (Sotho, Xhosa, and Zulu) when using Convenient OCR in JAWS and Fusion.<br>• Resolved a reported issue with TreeViews in Eclipse not reading as expected using speech. Braille support for these controls will be addressed in a future<br>update.<br>• All JAWS Flexible Web Rules created for 1 chromium based Browser will now apply for any other browser that also uses Chromium. For example, if you create<br>a Flexible Web Rule in Chrome, it will also apply for the new Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser.<br>• Resolved an issue where FSReader would become unresponsive when opening a very large DAISY book.<br>• Added a function for web application scripts that helps JAWS ignore the role=&quot;application&quot; attribute when a web author has used it incorrectly. This<br>was reported by ONCE in Spain and was related to SAP web-based applications.<br>• Resolved a reported issue from Once in Spain where opening very large messages in Outlook 365 with lots of nested levels was causing JAWS and Outlook<br>to stop responding.<br>• Added Color Settings options to the View menu in the Script Manager to help users who have issues viewing certain colors, for instance, red/green color<br>blindness.<br>list end<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'><br>Enhancements<br>&nbsp;Enhancements in JAWS 2020.2001.70 (February 2020)<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>The following is a list of improvements made between the December 2019 release and the February 2020 update.<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>To download the latest release, visit the <br>Downloads web page.<br>You must be logged on as an administrator to install this software.<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>list of 20 items<br>• Addressed issues using JAWS and Fusion with the new Microsoft Edge Chromium Browser released in January 2020.
