Re: JAWS 2019 Initial Thoughts

I've just finished catching up on this thread and wanted to chime in with my own impressions.

I installed the beta on the office PC and thus far very happy with how responsive Jfw is specially when browsing the web.

Even dealing with lots of email in Thunderbird is greatly improved.

In my experience, from time to time under version 2018 if I moved up and down in the list of messages, speech would hang occasionally. 

Those are the 2 examples that come to mind.

The release notes mention greater responsiveness in office, which I'm looking forward to trying out, both via  speech, and braille.   

Finally, I am not having any issues regarding announcement of a background Window.

Running Windows 10 (OS Build 17134.285).

No Vipre software.

Mine took that long as well under Windows 10.


I had Vipre Antivirus active at the time, not sure if that would make a difference.

[jaws-users] JAWS 2019 Initial Thoughts

Hi friends,

Just downloaded the initial version.
I Am having some feedback from what would seem to be a background window e.g. when I am in Microsoft Outlook 2016 opening messages etc, JAWS seems to keep saying JAWS For Windows for some reason.
It also doesn’t read the automatic email address suggestions when you are typing a new message, in the to box.
Not sure if anyone else has found any similar issues?
