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.

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.
