I guess it's a bit like with car models, the 2019 models will already start to come out in the late summer or fall of 2018.
As DAve pointed out, Convenient OCR can now use a scanner or Pearl Camera as a source, but also important to note is that it is no longer limited to only performing OCR on PDF files which you open in Acrobat Reader. Any image file, jpg, tif, pdf etc. can now be recognized simply by going to the file in Windows Explorer, bringing up the context menu with your application key or Shift+F10 and thenpressing "J" for "Recognize with Jaws" which is one of the options in the menu which comes up.
Jaws 2018 also has better support for the Edge browser and looking ahead it is definitely the version you want to get if at all possible.

Major difference is that if you have a Pearl camera, or other scanning device attached, you can invoke OCR on a printed page directly from the JAWS Convenient OCR feature, rather than running Openbook or other OCR software.
No improvements to sluggishness or freezing when using JAWS commands, however.

Dear friend, there are several new things Freedomscientific has introduced through JAWS 2018.

To my best knowledge there are 3 things I’d like to highlight, better proformence in using Microsoft edge, new way of OCR, and one of the most interesting thing which JAWS 18 doesn’t have is Screen shade.

Speech on demand is another exciting feature which JAWS 18 doesn’t have.

If you are user of JAWS 18, you are advised to read what’s new in JAWS 2018.

For that, you need to visit:

Hi Scott,

The Linux subsystem for Windows is a welcome addition to Windows 10. I prefer the command line environment over the point and click graphical user interface.

To review the screen, use either the JAWS cursor or invisible cursor. The JAWS cursor can be activated by pressing NumPad -. The invisible cursor can be activated by pressing NumPad - twice quickly. You can determine which cursor is active by pressing ALT+NumPad delete.
I hope this helps.

HI all

My work is currently going through an update of all it's hard and software, basically we are transferring over to windows 10 from windows 7 and having new laptops.

 

The reason for me contacting is that I and IT are having a few problems installing the JAWS on to the new laptop, each time we do an install for JAWS 16 pro an error message pops up to  say “ The Freedom Scientific Mirror display driver is not properly installed” and we cannot proceed any further.

 

I am not sure if this is an issue with the software (JAWS) not being able to work with windows 10, or that the build of the laptop is not compatible with JAWS. We also got the same error message when we tried to download a copy of JAWS 18. 

 

Any help would be really appreciated. 

Many Thanks

Hi,

 

The single best way to fix issues like this is to join the Chrome Access list.  You can join by sending a blank message to:-

 

axs-chrome-discuss+subscribe@...

 

Then when you are joined, the posting address is:-

Google are fantastic at listening to and fixing accessibility concerns with Chrome and all screen readers.

 

All the best

I can reproduce it by following the link you gave. I suggest reporting it to VFO. If it’s a JAWS issue, they can fix it. If it’s a Google Chrome issue, Google can fix it (and they recently – within the last year or so – employed another top accessibility engineer to work on Chrome, in addition to the excellent expertise they already had).

Re: beeps?

Carol Smith
 

No, grin, there is not a stuck key. I am back to Window-Eyes right now and it is working fine. I get the little harpy sound at the end of a line, but that is all.

I just switched back to Jaws and everything seems to be back to normal. I am going to switch back to David and see what happens. All seems to be back to normal. I have no idea what has been going on. I went back to Goldwave and the beeps have started up again, but this time, they stopped when I switched back to my email. Or, at least, there were only a few beeps. They are irratic, but they are still there. It sounds as though there is a conflict with Goldwave and the better voices. I guess I will need to switch back and forth with screen readers depending on what program I want to use. It's a good thing I have more than one, grin.

Carol

Oh yes, the beeps are back pretty definitely in my email program.

Subject: beeps?


Hi,

I am using Windows 10 current and Jaws 2018. I am being bombarded with
beeps. If I don't do anything, they will eventually stop, but as soon
as I do anything, yes, I mean anything, I get beeped. It is a fairly low
pitched beep. If I press one key and stop, I will get at least three or
more beeps. Any program opening or closing or any action within that
program is very distracting. The beeps are as loud as the voice. I am
using Microsoft David. I have switched from David (64-bit) to Zyra
(SAPI5) and the beeps have gone, but now, I get one of the Windows
sounds that I typically get with every line change. I am finding these
sounds to be quite annoying and it is difficult to get anything done.
The harpy sort fo sound comes every time I stop typing and sometimes
while I am typing. Can someone help?

Thanks

Carol

You might try a different keyboard if you have one.
