Re: Jaws 13 out next week

Gerald Levy
 

Still, while the OCR feature sounds like it might actually be useful, there doesn't seem to be much else in JAWS 13 to get excited about and make me want to rush out and upgrade my SMA.

Uh John, are you part of the beta test team? I bet you won't be for long.

Still though, that was interesting reading. Many will be glad to see the Excel problems receiving attention, finally!

Re: Jaws 13 out next week

Dave...
 

Chris,

"...see the Excel problems receiving attention, finally!"

Thank you for letting that horse out of the barn. There is hope for me.

To wit I finally loaded the latest JAWS 12 on my studio computer with XP Pro
32-bit SP2 and tried Excel 2007 "out of the box" and it was completely
screwed up.

So I'm glad FS owned up to their FUBAR and will fix it.

Re: JAWS 13 don't download off that link I gave

John Martyn
 

The page you were actually looking at does not have all the current updates as well. The beta will be much better and it will be easier to install. I just wanted you all to see what updates to JAWS were coming out.
Let them put out the real beta that doesn't have all the bugs.
Sigh, that's what I get for being stupid. It will be a real headache if you install this one.

I didn't download, mostly because I don't have a separate machine for testing. But, many probably will download.

Re: Jaws 13 out next week

Peter, there's nothing stopping you or others with not as much money from getting Abby Finereader or some other OCR program menat for the general computer user, not specifically designed for blind people. Sure, they aren't as elegant or taylored just for our needs, but they're a lot less expensive.

Since when does FS care about giving its customers a break? Why would FS want to charge, say, $1500 for a program that combines the best features of JAWS and Open Book into a single package, when they can charge $1000 for each program individually? It's all about the bottom line.

Re: Jaws 13 out next week

John Martyn
 

The OCR function in JAWS 13 is a way to get at that graphical text in programs. It isn't a document reader. It will grab small bits of text that you can actually interact with such as that flash update window that everyone gets. You should be able to read the buttons with this and click the right one once it is done reading the screen.
That's just one practical purpose. Now if you could script it, that would be amazing.

Yes but it would save those who don't already have it a hell of a lot of money if it's any good and there are always new assistive technology users coming along..

I like the OCR functions Jaws will have. I wonder if that portion is scriptable. That would be so awesome.

Re: Jaws 13 out next week

Gary King
 

George,
If the new JAWS 13 feature reads graphical text on your computer screen, as it appears to do from John Martin's description of it interacting with a setup program, then it won't be competing with Open Book or Kurzweil 1000. It will just be helpful for accessing those computer programs that label their controls with graphics rather than actual text.

I looked on the FS web site, but couldn't find the demo. I'm sure it will be in the September FS Cast, but if it is available now, I would be interested to know where it can be found.

How would that be an ideal world? People already say JAWS is too bloted.
That'd just give them more reason to say so.

I wouldn't get too excited about this alleged OCR option. After all, if it
were really useful, it might detract from sales of Open Book, which is the
last thing FS wants to happen. In an ideal world, JAWS and Open Book would
be merged into a single program, but, of course, that's only wishful
thinking.
