Freedom Scientific Releases JAWS® 11

20 October, 2009 by Peter Verhoeven

Freedom Scientific announced the English release of JAWS version 11, the worlds leading screen reader for visually impaired computer users. This new release includes features that will expand educational and employment opportunities for users at all levels. These new features include Research It, Word Index, a free software DAISY player, and enhancements specifically for Windows 7, including UI Automation support and improved ARIA support.

The new Research It feature lets users quickly access information for any application and immediately return to what they were doing. Use just a few keystrokes to look up information such as word definitions, Wikipedia results, weather conditions, news stories, or even sports scores. When you have finished reviewing the information, simply press ESCAPE to return to your current task. An Internet connection is all that is required to use Research It with JAWS 11. There is also a very comprehensive Research It Developer's Guide that shows how individuals or organizations can modify Research It to create their own lookups on the Web or even within their own network for improved on-the-job efficiency.

Beginning with PAC Mate™ Omni earlier this year and now with JAWS 11, Freedom Scientific is pleased to include a free FSReader software DAISY player for all of our customers. “There is no question that DAISY books are becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives," said Eric Damery, Vice President of Software Product Management, "and having a free reader installed along with our screen reader and MAGic® screen magnification products is a real benefit. We have also updated all the free Basic Training DAISY books, and they are all now shipping right on the DVD.
