New Features in JAWS 18:

New Features in ZoomText11:

For the release of ZoomText 11 our goal was to make ZoomText faster and friendlier than ever before. So we streamlined the toolbars, simplified command keys, and unified the core features to make them easier to learn and use. We’ve also made sure that the ZoomText interface is fully accessible using the mouse or the keyboard.

New ZoomText/JAWS Interoperability. Starting with the releases of ZoomText 11 and JAWS 18, ZoomText and JAWS are now officially compatible, giving you the best combination of speech and magnification available. You’ll enjoy how the two programs work together to keep your spoken point of interest in view, even when using the JAWS Say All command and virtual cursor. Now the two “Best in Category” are the “Best in Combination.

Three outcomes of presentation:
Gaining a fuller understanding of the VFO merger
