Windows 8


Nickus de Vos <bigboy529@...>
 

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.


Peter Holdstock <peterholdstock@...>
 

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.

First time I'm hearing about the narator thing but doubt if it will
come anything close to jaws. I'm guessing they will try and go the
same rout as apple with voiceover but that took apple a couple of
years and it's still not perfected will be cool though if it actually
works. Yes they will release public beta versions I guess late this
year or very early next year, a few very unstable beta versions has
already leeked on to the net, if I have some time I'll maybe look for
one and try it.

Because Windows 8 has not yet been released, it is impossible to know whether JAWS 12 will work with it. I'm just speculating, but I would imagine that the next release of JAWS, JAWS 13 would be more likely to be compatible with Win 8 than JAWS 12.

Yes agree with you on the speculation. Yes think they will make jaws
13 with windows 8 in mind but it will really be a bummer if people
have to update to jaws 13 just because 12 or even older versions
doesn't work. To give you a example, I only upgraded to jaws 12 about
a month ago, before I had 11 and I used windows 7 since it was
released as a public beta back then think I had jaws 9 or 10 and it
worked all the way. As I said if I have some time I'll try to find a
leaked beta of windows 8 and try it.

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.


Peter Holdstock <peterholdstock@...>
 

The last thing I saw was that it doesn't support mirror drivers so JAWS is out for now. I think NVDA and system access works though with a few strange querks i.e. probelms with log on screen.

Could you explain how you were able to try Windows 8 when it has not yet been released in public beta? Just curious.

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.


Chris Smart <csmart8@...>
 

several prerelease versions have been leaked, as you can read about on Wikipedia or lots of other places. Or do a torrent search for Windows 8.

I have just had a chat with a clever friend in uk about this and that, he
has been testing the Beta version of windows 8, said he thinks it willbe
out end of next year. I asked him about the voice recognition part andhe
said it seems even better in windows 8, so far he seems quite pleased with
it, he is clever youngman who used to make all his own computers when he had
time regards dorothy

As far as I heard microsoft is looking at launching in the first half
of next year. This kind of sucks from what I've seen so far in the
last hour or two it meens everybody will have to go to jaws 13 to use
windows 8. This means ither everybody will just pay and take the
plunge or they will stay with windows 7 or xp in the case of those
who's still afraid of windows 7 because of the windows vista disaster.

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.

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.

no, leaked plus it being available from file sharing sites suggests that it is *not* legal. I gather you had that sussed out already though.
On the other hand, IE8 is entirely legal and has been available for some time. *grin*

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

I don't see what the big deal is if people have to move to JAWS 13 to have Windows 8. At the end of the day it's peoples own decision whether they upgrade and for some time after Windows 8 is released you'll still be able to have Windows 7 as an option on new PCs so peoples computers are still going to do what they did prior to the release of Windows 8.

As far as I heard microsoft is looking at launching in the first half of
next year. This kind of sucks from what I've seen so far in the last hour or
two it meens everybody will have to go to jaws 13 to use windows 8. This
means ither everybody will just pay and take the plunge or they will stay
with windows 7 or xp in the case of those who's still afraid of windows 7
because of the windows vista disaster.

recognition part andhe said it seems even better in windows 8, so far
he seems quite pleased with it, he is clever youngman who used to make
all his own computers when he had time regards dorothy

Could you explain how you were able to try Windows 8 when it has not
yet been released in public beta? Just curious.

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.
