    Enhancements in JAWS 2022.2207.25 (and Fusion) for July 2022

    The following is a list of improvements made between the June 2022 release and the July 2022 update.

    • The Liblouis braille translator used by JAWS and Fusion has been updated to version 3.22.0.
    • When pressing ENTER on a link that moves focus to another location on the current web page, resolved a reported issue where the Virtual Cursor was not getting moved to the new location even though the page visually scrolled.
    • Resolved an issue where pressing ENTER in a multiline edit box in Chrome or Edge was unexpectedly moving focus back to the top.
    • Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the Note pad status bar in Windows 11 when pressing INSERT+PAGE DOWN.
    • Resolved issues navigating the Address List dialog box in Word, which is accessed through the Mailings tab (ALT+M).
    • Addressed a reported issue where JAWS was not detecting the clickable graphics on for starting video playback.
    • JAWS now announces the lock status of the FN key when pressing FN+ESC. Note that this primarily works with the Microsoft Surface laptop, Surface tablet, or Surface Keyboard and may not work with other vendors such as Dell at this time. When the FN key is locked, you can press the function keys to adjust settings like volume or screen brightness without first needing to hold down the FN key.
    • When searching for text in a Word document, resolved a reported issue where JAWS was not reading the selected item as you navigated the list of results.
    • Resolved an issue where pressing INSERT+CTRL+1 through 8 was not reading the associated column in the list of files in File Explorer or the message list in Outlook.
    • In response to a customer request, added several international symbols to the Select a Symbol to Print dialog box (INSERT+4), which allows you to quickly choose a symbol and insert it into the current document.

    Enhancements in ZoomText 2022.2207.14 (and Fusion)

    The following items have been addressed in the July 2022 update.

    • Resolved an issue for Sight and Sound where the Zoom Window Adjust Tool was not working when using the Lens zoom window.
    • Addressed an issue where magnification would sometimes fail after switching languages in ZoomText.
    • Resolved an issue with AppReader where pressing ESC while on a link would launch the link instead of closing AppReader.
    • Resolved an issue where AppReader was not working properly with some kiosk applications.
    • Resolved an issue where the magnified view port was not tracking along when using scroll commands such as CAPS LOCK+SHIFT+RIGHT ARROW.
    • Resolved an issue where there was no keyboard echo when pressing DELETE to delete characters.
    • When using the Quick Access Bar with Macedonian selected as the user interface language, search results would appear in English instead of Macedonian. This has been resolved.
