Window-Eyes 9.2 is now available!

Here’s the press release from AI Squared about 9.2.


Access the Latest Technology with Window-Eyes 9.2

Window-Eyes 9.2 is now available providing full support for the brand new Windows 10 operating system, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, and Office 2016. Window-Eyes 9.2 makes it possible to use the latest technology, includes innovative new ways to access the web, and provides a more reliable and responsive screen reading experience. Window-Eyes 9.2 offers access to the latest tools and technologies to make you more effective and productive at work, at school, and at home.

Keep reading to learn about all of the new features and enhancements in Window-Eyes 9.2:

Windows 10 and Office 2016 Support

· Comprehensive support for Windows 10 includes:

o Windows 10 Start menu

o Action Center

o Virtual Desktops

o Quick Access view in File Explorer

· Preliminary Support for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook in the Microsoft Office 2016 Preview.

Innovative Access to Facebook and other Popular Web Applications

· New functionality called Web Application Mode has been added that makes interacting with dynamic web applications even easier.

· On web sites, such as Facebook and Google Docs which implement their own hot keys, Web Application Mode enables you to use these site-specific commands without having to turn Browse Mode off. This leads to a more intuitive and efficient web browsing experience.

New Addition to Auto Recovery

· Window-Eyes 9.0 introduced the Auto-Recovery tool which enables you to restart Window-Eyes if another application you are using becomes unresponsive. We have continued to improve this feature in Window-Eyes 9.2. If Internet Explorer stops responding, it would often keep Window-Eyes from speaking. Now, if Internet Explorer stops responding, Window-Eyes will continue speaking automatically without requiring the user to do anything.

Support for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

· Adobe recently released a new version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, called Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Window-Eyes 9.2 includes support for Adobe Reader DC, enabling users to take advantage of all of the benefits offered by the free PDF viewer.

Bug Fixes

· Window-Eyes 9.2 has numerous bug fixes and performance enhancements, including improved speech responsiveness and stability.

Don’t Be Fooled By Phony Online Reviews

Here’s something I read this morning from Brian Krebs. Don’t Be Fooled By Phony Online Reviews talks about a guy who seriously used a company he couldn’t really check on to have his stuff moved and he has not gotten his stuff yet and its been months. I know I’d use a site like Yelp or Yellow Pages or their apps since people tend to leave honest reviews whether they are nice or not. It links to other types of information about the companies involved, and it may be of use to you guys. I found it of interest, hopefully you will.

Scammers Turn To Caller ID ‘Spoofing’ To Pose As Police : NPR

Check this article out. Its worth the read, and Herbie sent this to me in mid June.

There’s a new kind of phone scam on the rise: fraudsters using fake numbers to pretend they’re calling from the local police department. And there’s little the real police can do about it.
