The choice is entirely yours as a consumer, to upgrade or not upgrade.
I stuck with XP for 6 or 7 years because it met my needs. Once it no longer did, I moved up to 7.

Dorothy, did you mean text to speech or actually mean voice recognition?

And this is a legal version of IE 8? I was under the impression that IE 8 has not yet been released for public beta testing by MS. So any version of IE 8 that has been "leaked" prematurely onto the web is probably an illegal hacked copy. Indeed, it is my understanding that the public beta of Windows 8 will not be released until early next year. You have to register with MS to be a beta tester. I know this because I was a beta tester for IE8 and had to provide feedback to MS.

Re: Windows 8 and Candidly Speaking

Peter Holdstock <peterholdstock@...>
 

Where does the money come from then to fund the accessibility side of Apple products if it's not from sales of product? Also, you mention about the apple hardware all working together. It could be argued that to develop products for a system which isn't so closed shop as Apples products is harder and more expensive because the drivers aren't all generic. As for product quality, I know several people who have had Macs and PCs fail, and likewise I know people who have had both PCs and Macs go on for a long time. But as you say we don't want to go off topic.

Don't quite agree with you there. Yes apple hardware is more expensive
but it's not to finance side projects like accessibility. If windows
wanted to, they could have made narator in to what voiceover is today
by just putting some efort in to it and interacting more with their
users. My view of apples expensive hardware is that it's more
expensive for a reason, you get what you pay for, e.g. a apple
computer would last you a lot longer than a pc plus the hardware and
software are designed for each other where with pc drivers must be
written for every piece of the pc just to talk to the other bits.
Let's not go off topic here, I just think apple was smarter than
windows in making accessibility more of a priority a few years ago,
these roomers of narator becoming a full on screen reader, if you ask
me it's windows realising apple was rite in the first place concerning
accessibility but now they will have to try to play catch up.

Hey.

Paul...have you had any success with this at all? I find Creative's software
nearly unusable on all counts. Have you succeeded in getting any of the
other software to work with your screenreader, such as the Vienna sound font

don't even think there are any keyboard commands.

Unfortunately I don't really know much about scripting myself, but I'd
definitely be curious as to what sort of headway you've made. I have a

Hi Ed.

I agree with you on all points! Most of the applications I use on a
daily basis, besides email and web browsing, require scripting
support from Jaws. If we all go for the lowest common denominator,
even if it's free, some people will literally lose their livlihoods.

Re: Windows 8

Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

Nickus, I heard a rumor that Windows 8 addresses the screen differently than previous versions, so whether we like it or not, FS will have had to come up with something new in Jaws 13 to work with it.


Windows 8 and Candidly Speaking

Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

Don't quite agree with you there. Yes apple hardware is more expensive
but it's not to finance side projects like accessibility. If windows
wanted to, they could have made narator in to what voiceover is today
by just putting some efort in to it and interacting more with their
users. My view of apples expensive hardware is that it's more
expensive for a reason, you get what you pay for, e.g. a apple
computer would last you a lot longer than a pc plus the hardware and
software are designed for each other where with pc drivers must be
written for every piece of the pc just to talk to the other bits.
Let's not go off topic here, I just think apple was smarter than
windows in making accessibility more of a priority a few years ago,
these roomers of narator becoming a full on screen reader, if you ask
me it's windows realising apple was rite in the first place concerning
accessibility but now they will have to try to play catch up.

Yes but Apple charge every user much more for the hardware so that helps
subsidise the accessibility side of things. Same with all the other Apple
products with accessibility.

Agree with you guys but as I said don't put your hopes on narator or
on FS dropping the price for jaws. Sure there will be a improvement in
narator but doubt if it will be big enough to mean anything. The thing
with FS is they don't give a rats ass for the individual which is us
the users. That's what I like about voiceover, sure it's not yet up
there with jaws but apple doesn't even ask $1000 for it but still they
listen to every single one of their users.

Hi,
I tried it - most of the new parts dren't working well with J12 because
Microsoft disabled the option to use the meeror driver.

One does this by first subscribing to the ViPhone Google Group and asking
the question there, as this has absolutely nothing to do with JAWS.

Subject: RE: Windows 8 and Candidly Speaking

I haven't said much as the topics of JAWS alternatives have come up.
Several have voiced some admiration for Apple and its built-in screen reader
VoiceOver. I don't have a Mac, but I do have an iPhone. So, I know a little
about VoiceOver, and I've been on the Mac lists. So, I know more than a
little about it.
Periodically, someone will mention NVDA, an open source free screen reader.
I've used it, and the experience was far from satisfying. Now, we hear at
least a rumor that Narrator will become a full-blown screen reader, however
one defines "full blown."
What troubles me is that as more and more people are satisfied with "good
enough" because, after all, it is free, the number of those willing to fork
over cash for the powerful screen readers like Window-Eyes and JAWS will
drop. As that happens, the price will doubtless go up.
Speaking from a purely personal perspective, I would hate to see that
happen. I need things like track changes, support for styles, and other
powerful features that go along with using Word to its fullest.
NVDA, VoiceOver, and even System Access cannot compete at that level, having
no functionality to touch either JAWS or Window-Eyes.
Philosophically, I suppose I should shut up and take my medicine. One could
argue that JAWS is artificially high-priced, forcing, or seeming to force,
ordinary users to pay for features they don't want or need.
Perhaps if I want the features, I should be willing to pay extra for them.
I know JAWS now has two price levels, with a somewhat higher price for what
I use -- Professional Version.
Perhaps, in the future, what we will see is a JAWS light for $100 or so and
a JAWS heavy duty for $5,000 or more. Ouch!
Still, one has to consider the features one needs. I may not need all the
cell reading functions in Excel, but I'm willing to pay for them to get the
professional features I need in Word. I just think we should step back a
little before we cavalierly express a willingness for "good enough." My
guess is that "good enough" won't in fact be "good enough" just when it is
needed most.

I know that they are making Narrator in to a full blown screen reader and is
expected to be competition to JAWS. That said I think it's functionality
still won't come close but then how much of the jaws features do we all use
on the day to day basis at least for home use. Hopefully they will release a
public beta like they did with Windows 7 as it was very successful.

Hi all I was just wondering if any of you seen anything about windows
8 and if jaws 12 will work with it. Thing is from what I've heard the
windows 8 interface is going to be dramatically redesigned to give it a
fresh look, it is a atemt by microsoft to stay in the game along side apple.
