HI Ed, I checked the About JAWS status line and the 1 remaining upgrade shown there previously now reads zero so your observation about a final release as opposed to Beta seems correct. Mitch

Subject: Notes on Windows 8 and JAWS compatibility

Hi folks,
Due to many interests on JAWS 14's performance with Windows 8, I decided to
write some usage notes (mostly in preparation for Win8's release next
Friday):
Test machine specs:
* OS: Windows 8 Pro.
* JAWS version: 14.0.730 Beta 2.

Windows 8 specifics:
* Versions: Windows 8, windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows RT
(run-time). The last one is available for ARM tablets, meaning that JAWS
will not run on it.
* Start menu has been replaced by "start screen" - a combination of previous
start menu's search functionality and home screens of many smartphone
operating systems. Press Windows key to launch start screen. Initially,
you'll be placed at app tiles screen where you can use arrow keys to move
around the screen of apps. Once you start typing, search bar appears so you
can search among apps, files and settings. From within the list of app
tiles, press tab to move to users control where you can press SPACE to open
user specific menu such as signing off and switching users).
* charms bar: on the right side of the screen is a vertical bar known as
"charms bar". Press Windows key+C to open this bar. This area contains five
items (refered to as charms): Start screen (Windows key), Search charm
(shortcut depends on categories), Settings (Windows key+I), Share (Windows
key+H) and Devices (Windows key+K). The Settings charm is used to view
common settings such as network connection name and strength, volume and
power options. It also contains a shortcut for Control Panel housed in a
combo box. The Search charm allows one to search for apps (Windows Key+Q),
files (Windows Key+F) and settings (Windows key+W). The Devices charm allows
one to project to a second screen, and Share charm allows data to be shared
from desktop to other computers.
* From anywhere on Windows 8, press Windows key+D to go to Desktop. Or, from
start screen, navigate the tiles until you hear "desktop" and press ENtER.
* Windows Explorer (now File Explorer) uses ribbon interface.
* IE10: Initially, when you start IE10, you'll use Metro style version of
IE10. To switch to regular IE10, press Windows key+R to open Run, type an
address, press ENTER and use Tools/Options to change to regular interface.
The user interface of IE10 is similar to IE9 except JAWS will not read you
auto-complete suggestions on address bar.
* Power Users menu: on some systems (I assume all), pressing Windows key+X
brings power usrs menu for running admin functions, such as command prompt,
task manager and control panel. This menu houses mobility center as well.
* Windows Mobility Center: since Windows key+X is used for power users menu,
to go to mobility center, from power users menu, press B. Most of the
mobility center's settings are now housed in Settings charm. Consequently,
it is now easier to connect to wireless networks or change volume.
* Shutdown: Since start screen does not have shutdown option, to do this,
press Windows key+I, press tab until you go to "power options", press SPACE
then choose shutdown. By default, the way Windows 8 shuts itself off is
different from that of previous Windows version (for more info on this, I
suggest reading online articles on what's called 'hybrid boot"; I'll explain
this in more detail on Blind Windows 8 list later).

JAWS and Windows 8:
* Within start screen, when you move around app tiles, a sound is heard when
JAWS detects that a tile takes up twice the space of other tiles.
* When searching apps, JAWS reads the first result as you type your text.
* In some applications, when the window is maximized, JAWS does not read
status bar items (could be my computer only, as I'm using a computer that I
bought in 2009).
* While copying/cutting files and when there are conflicts such as files
with same names, JAWS does not read focused buttons.
* JAWS may or may not support metro style apps.
* As far as I can tell, JAWS does not have touch gestures (you may have been
thinking of a free screen reader which does have support for touchscreens
under Win8).

Hope this helps. For anyone who are interested in learning more about
Windows 8, I'd like to suggest subscribing to Blind Windows 8 mailing lists
hosted by Yahoo Groups. Thanks.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Closing one tab in Internet Explorer 8

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

They are Windows keystrokes. I believe I've used them both, but usually
wind up using Ctrl-F4, an oldie but a goody. That simply closes the
file while leaving the app running, and goes way back.

This sounds like one big mess. If there is no start menu, how do you scroll

Subject: Notes on Windows 8 and JAWS compatibility


Hi folks,
Due to many interests on JAWS 14's performance with Windows 8, I decided
to
write some usage notes (mostly in preparation for Win8's release next
Friday):
Test machine specs:
* OS: Windows 8 Pro.
* JAWS version: 14.0.730 Beta 2.

Windows 8 specifics:
* Versions: Windows 8, windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise and Windows RT
(run-time). The last one is available for ARM tablets, meaning that JAWS
will not run on it.
* Start menu has been replaced by "start screen" - a combination of
previous
start menu's search functionality and home screens of many smartphone
operating systems. Press Windows key to launch start screen. Initially,
you'll be placed at app tiles screen where you can use arrow keys to move
around the screen of apps. Once you start typing, search bar appears so
you
can search among apps, files and settings. From within the list of app
tiles, press tab to move to users control where you can press SPACE to
open
user specific menu such as signing off and switching users).
* charms bar: on the right side of the screen is a vertical bar known as
"charms bar". Press Windows key+C to open this bar. This area contains
five
items (refered to as charms): Start screen (Windows key), Search charm
(shortcut depends on categories), Settings (Windows key+I), Share (Windows
key+H) and Devices (Windows key+K). The Settings charm is used to view
common settings such as network connection name and strength, volume and
power options. It also contains a shortcut for Control Panel housed in a
combo box. The Search charm allows one to search for apps (Windows Key+Q),
files (Windows Key+F) and settings (Windows key+W). The Devices charm
allows
one to project to a second screen, and Share charm allows data to be
shared
from desktop to other computers.
* From anywhere on Windows 8, press Windows key+D to go to Desktop. Or,
from
start screen, navigate the tiles until you hear "desktop" and press ENtER.
* Windows Explorer (now File Explorer) uses ribbon interface.
* IE10: Initially, when you start IE10, you'll use Metro style version of
IE10. To switch to regular IE10, press Windows key+R to open Run, type an
address, press ENTER and use Tools/Options to change to regular interface.
The user interface of IE10 is similar to IE9 except JAWS will not read you
auto-complete suggestions on address bar.
* Power Users menu: on some systems (I assume all), pressing Windows key+X
brings power usrs menu for running admin functions, such as command
prompt,
task manager and control panel. This menu houses mobility center as well.
* Windows Mobility Center: since Windows key+X is used for power users
menu,
to go to mobility center, from power users menu, press B. Most of the
mobility center's settings are now housed in Settings charm. Consequently,
it is now easier to connect to wireless networks or change volume.
* Shutdown: Since start screen does not have shutdown option, to do this,
press Windows key+I, press tab until you go to "power options", press
SPACE
then choose shutdown. By default, the way Windows 8 shuts itself off is
different from that of previous Windows version (for more info on this, I
suggest reading online articles on what's called 'hybrid boot"; I'll
explain
this in more detail on Blind Windows 8 list later).

JAWS and Windows 8:
* Within start screen, when you move around app tiles, a sound is heard
when
JAWS detects that a tile takes up twice the space of other tiles.
* When searching apps, JAWS reads the first result as you type your text.
* In some applications, when the window is maximized, JAWS does not read
status bar items (could be my computer only, as I'm using a computer that
I
bought in 2009).
* While copying/cutting files and when there are conflicts such as files
with same names, JAWS does not read focused buttons.
* JAWS may or may not support metro style apps.
* As far as I can tell, JAWS does not have touch gestures (you may have
been
thinking of a free screen reader which does have support for touchscreens
under Win8).

Hope this helps. For anyone who are interested in learning more about
Windows 8, I'd like to suggest subscribing to Blind Windows 8 mailing
lists
hosted by Yahoo Groups. Thanks.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Spotify Blind 1.0.7 Released

John,

I appreciate all that you are doing.
I just thought it was a opporator malfunction on my part and just wanted to
get clarification to see if I am doing something wrong.
Of course, nobody would know unless they tandomed with me; however, I have
no doubts your scrip works.
When I log in, I am presented with two edit fields and I don't know which is
wich. I just assume that the one before the password is where I can type in
my facebook info.
I'll try again later today and report back.

I launch spotify and it seems to be a bi*** to log in. It says log in with

So am I on the wrong track here?
