JAWS 8.0 second update released
Greetings. For those interested, the second automatic update for Windows XP and for the public beta of Vista has been released. Read more about the second JAWS XP update here. The heading to look for is called, "Enhancements in JAWS Version 8.0.2107 (26 April 2007)." This update looks like it addresses many issues. I can't really speak to them individually, but it is good to hear that FS has fixed and allowed access to the User Access Control (UAC) in Windows Vista. That is a big thing that needs to work with JAWS, since from what I understand, it comes up on screen each time there's an attempted change to the user account settings. From the reviews I've read about Vista, this UAC appears a lot, so its good that JFW can now work with it. For those interested, you can Read what's new with JFW and Vista. Specifically, you will want to look for the heading called, "What to Know About the JAWS Public Beta with Windows Vista." Though I'm not quite ready to take the plunge and get a new computer yet, reading over the list of improvements is really exciting and increasing my anticipation for that day when I'll have a Vista machine and can really play with it. Enjoy.
