Moderated The Reference to JAWS 2023 Beta and Windows 11

Curtis Chong

Greetings everyone:


There was some discussion about whether or not the JAWS 2023 beta would work for users of Windows 10. I hope that I can clear up at least my confusion on this topic.


On the What’s New page, there is a statement which reads, “Windows 11 is the minimum supported Operating System.” If you look a bit further, this reference is made with regard to the use of JAWS on ARM64 computers. The JAWS versions support ARM64 processors are set up to run only on Windows 11. However, for those of us who aren’t using ARM64 machines, the JAWS beta will work on everything down to Windows 8.


I hope this helps to clear things up a bit.
