moderated JAWS 2022 AND ULTRAEDIT


Richard Bartholomew
 

Hi,

 

I am evaluating the latest version of the UltraEdit text editor but don’t seem to be able to get JAWS 2022 on Windows 11 to either speak or show highlighted text on a Braille display when selecting content in the editor.

 

The authors of the program have, obviously, made some efforts in the accessibility arena since, on launching the program, you are prompted to say whether or not you are using a screenreader!

 

Does anyone have experience of this editor, please, and any comments as to how accessible/usable it is?

 

Thanks for any help.

Ultraedit is my favorite text editor and I was very disappointed several years ago to discover that it was not at all accessible. So thanks for this news, I'll have to go and try it again, I bought a lifetime license, it will be nice to be able to use it again.
