gw connect is now available at version 1.2



Fort Wayne, Indiana (January 27, 2012) – GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com), developers of Window-Eyes, the most powerful screen reader available, released GWSkype last December – a program that is plugged into Skype™ and makes it accessible to all blind and visually impaired people who use a Windows computer. The free program was immediately embraced by blind and visually impaired people all around the world as it made Skype communication completely accessible and extremely easy to use.

To better comply with the SkypeKit developer terms of service, GWSkype customers were asked to submit name suggestions and then vote on a new name for GWSkype. The GWSkype community selected GWConnect as the new name.

Today, GW Micro is proud to announce that a new version of GWConnect is available for download! Customers have been able to post any GWConnect issues on the GW-Apps email list. GW Micro has taken note of those issues, and is releasing a maintenance release which will change the official name of GWSkype to GWConnect as well as to resolve many issues that have been reported. In addition, the update includes support for German, Swedish, and Turkish. Feature requests have also been noted and a version with an expanded feature set will be released later in 2012.

GWConnect is free for anyone who wants to use it. GWConnect customers who are not Window-Eyes customers will see various GW Micro ads while Window-Eyes customers will have a commercial-free experience. GWConnect customers who are not already Window-Eyes customers can purchase Window-Eyes for as little as $39 per month. Purchasing the Window-Eyes Payment Plan will enable GWConnect customers to have a commercial free experience. Information on the Window-Eyes Payment Plan can be found at www.gwmicro.com/paymentplan. For additional information on GWConnect, sign up for the GW-Apps email list at www.gwmicro.com/listserv.
GW Micro has been a trusted pioneer in the adaptive technology industry since 1990, and continues to lead with innovative, customer driven solutions.

Skype™ is a trademark of Skype Technologies S.A.
