I have downloaded Jaws2019, and find it to be much faster.  So far so good!

I tested the beta, and found it to be better for my purposes than JAWS 2018. They definitely fixed some bugs, and the improved Microsoft Office support is welcome - clearly noticeable with a current installation of Office 365, as, with the release, is the faster startup.

Agreed. A new feature for every release and two more for the updates is why we only recently got decent usability out of things like Chrome in JAWS 18 or so. Focus on issues, then when you've caught up to the app and platform baseline, we can talk about new toys to play with. I haven't bothered to keep JAWS up to date since 14 explicitly for that reason, but I'll be renewing my SMA shortly because now they're doing things I might actually have a use for. Well, that and because I'll probably be retiring windows 7 sooner than later.

Yes, not a lot of new stuff but , in my opinion, this is good.  Vespiro has finally gotten around to fixing a lot of bugs and loose ends rather than new stuff.  New is good, but for too long they have not addressed known issues .  So for me 2019 is good.

So is it just me or is this year's offering particularly meager?

(Remember, with the unified setup package it has to download the rest during install rather than when downloading the setup file). The only item I find at all useful is the faster startup time.

available for everybody, note you will need an SMA with at least 1
upgrade remaining to authorize Jaws 2019 for unrestricted use.

Here are a couple of the more noteworthy changes:

New Consolidated Setup Package
Starting with JAWS 2019, there is now one link to download and install
JAWS for all supported operating systems and languages. You no longer
have to choose the correct setup executable based on your system as
well as which language you need.
When you begin the setup, the installer automatically detects whether
you are using 32 or 64-bit and installs the correct components. If you
are doing a new install and you want to use a different language other
than the default for your operating system, select the Options button
on the first installation screen and then choose a language. If you
are updating an existing installation, the Options button is not
available as JAWS detects the language already installed and updates using the same language.

I would add that because of this change the new Jaws 2019 installer
file is a mere 23.5 Mb instead of the previous installers which were around 180 Mb.
You can still download an offline installer and here you do have to
pick the correct one, 32 Bit or 64 Bit, and that installer contains
all OCR components and so on and it is well over 500 Mb.

The JAWS Audio Ducking feature is now supported in the Windows 10
Spring
2018 Creators update (version 1803) and higher. Audio Ducking causes
the volume of other programs to be lowered while JAWS is speaking. For
example, if you are listening to music and JAWS begins talking, the
volume of the music will be slightly lowered so you can comfortably
hear JAWS and then raised back to its current level when JAWS stops
talking.
By default, audio remains at the same level as JAWS speech. To enable
Audio Ducking, open the Startup Wizard from the JAWS Help menu and
select the "Lower the volume of other programs while JAWS is speaking"
checkbox located on the Speech Settings page. Alternatively, Audio
Ducking can be turned on through Settings center.

Finally this feature works as it does on the iPhone and it's fantastic
that now when you open a website where some annoying and often loud
video begins to play you can still hear Jaws as you try to find the buttons to stop it.

Faster JAWS Startup with Grace Period Authorization JAWS 2019
introduces a new concept to help ease the delay in response when JAWS
first launches and looks for authorization. In prior versions, JAWS
would not fully start until proper authorization was found. Since
Authorization can include searching for a network license, the amount
of time before JAWS started speaking could be significant. While it is
not possible to speed up this period directly, the authorization
process will now be completed simultaneously to startup. As JAWS
searches for authorization, it enters a new "grace period"
authorization state which provides limited functionality, similar to
what is available on the logon screen, so you can use speech and
braille while authorization discovery takes place. Once the
authorization check has finished, JAWS then uses the correct feature set based on the license.

I advised you always keep at least one older version of jaws on the machine. You can have several version installed at the same time, as long as you run only one at a time. Wait for the bugs to be completely free from the person you want to use. Before you remove the older version. Of course, that could mean you never remove the older version. It’s a matter of preference.

Yes, not a lot of new stuff but , in my opinion, this is good. Vespiro has finally gotten around to fixing a lot of bugs and loose ends rather than new stuff. New is good, but for too long they have not addressed known issues . So for me 2019 is good.

So is it just me or is this year's offering particularly meager?
(Remember, with the unified setup package it has to download the rest during install rather than when downloading the setup file). The only item I find at all useful is the faster startup time.

The Jaws 2019 public beta cycle has ended and Jaws 2019 is now
available for everybody, note you will need an SMA with at least 1
upgrade remaining to authorize Jaws 2019 for unrestricted use.

Here are a couple of the more noteworthy changes:

New Consolidated Setup Package
Starting with JAWS 2019, there is now one link to download and install
JAWS for all supported operating systems and languages. You no longer
have to choose the correct setup executable based on your system as
well as which language you need.
When you begin the setup, the installer automatically detects whether
you are using 32 or 64-bit and installs the correct components. If you
are doing a new install and you want to use a different language other
than the default for your operating system, select the Options button
on the first installation screen and then choose a language. If you
are updating an existing installation, the Options button is not
available as JAWS detects the language already installed and updates using the same language.

I would add that because of this change the new Jaws 2019 installer
file is a mere 23.5 Mb instead of the previous installers which were around 180 Mb.
You can still download an offline installer and here you do have to
pick the correct one, 32 Bit or 64 Bit, and that installer contains
all OCR components and so on and it is well over 500 Mb.

The JAWS Audio Ducking feature is now supported in the Windows 10
Spring
2018 Creators update (version 1803) and higher. Audio Ducking causes
the volume of other programs to be lowered while JAWS is speaking. For
example, if you are listening to music and JAWS begins talking, the
volume of the music will be slightly lowered so you can comfortably
hear JAWS and then raised back to its current level when JAWS stops
talking.
By default, audio remains at the same level as JAWS speech. To enable
Audio Ducking, open the Startup Wizard from the JAWS Help menu and
select the "Lower the volume of other programs while JAWS is speaking"
checkbox located on the Speech Settings page. Alternatively, Audio
Ducking can be turned on through Settings center.

Finally this feature works as it does on the iPhone and it's fantastic
that now when you open a website where some annoying and often loud
video begins to play you can still hear Jaws as you try to find the buttons to stop it.

Faster JAWS Startup with Grace Period Authorization JAWS 2019
introduces a new concept to help ease the delay in response when JAWS
first launches and looks for authorization. In prior versions, JAWS
would not fully start until proper authorization was found. Since
Authorization can include searching for a network license, the amount
of time before JAWS started speaking could be significant. While it is
not possible to speed up this period directly, the authorization
process will now be completed simultaneously to startup. As JAWS
searches for authorization, it enters a new "grace period"
authorization state which provides limited functionality, similar to
what is available on the logon screen, so you can use speech and
braille while authorization discovery takes place. Once the
authorization check has finished, JAWS then uses the correct feature set based on the license.

There are many more features all of which you can read about by
activating the following link and then just use heading quick keys to
find the What's New section and read about each new feature.

Being a fairly new Jaws user is there any real reason to keep Jaws 2018 installed after installing Jaws 2019?

Also there is a lot of Fs listings under programs and features. To remove Jaws 2018 do I only uninstall the one that says FS Jaws 2018 and ignor the rest?

Thanks


Re: SMA

Dan Longmore
 

Hi,
Last I knew price of SMA for Home version of JAWS was $120 which entitles you to 2 releases and their updates. Sometimes, the SMA price may increase after end of year. I am not certain if this is still the case.

It is good to keep a prior version of JAWS on your system. For example I am keeping JAWS 2018 until I am certain that major bugs or issues do not exist with final release. Also, in certain cases a prior version of JAWS may work better with a program than the newest release. Not usually but in some rare cases and in fact Vespiro recommends this idea.
So I make the latest version of JAWS to start at log on and just keep the old program on the system and assign it a different short cut key in case I need it.

Dan

Hello list:

A recent post recommended keeping the prior version of Jaws at least until they work out any "bugs" found on new release. Aren't these what the periodic updates do?

Second question: What is the current price of the SMA, and how many updates does this entitle you to?

Sincerely,

Did not see the shorteer load time for Jaws during the beta but it is definitely loading faster after installing Jaws 2019.

You'd be correct if Fusion wasn't also the name VFO gives to its combined
Zoomtext/JAWS software.
