Updates included in the latest release

With this release, we have added some exciting new features, including:

  • The JAWS Inspect Setup Package has been updated so that it includes the latest release of JAWS 2021, the JAWS 2021.2107.12 – July 2021 release.
  • If JAWS 2022 is installed, JAWS 2022 will be included in the JAWS Version combo box in the General Page of the JAWS Inspect Settings form. Note this item will not be included in the combo box if JAWS 2022 is not installed and JAWS 2022 needs to be installed separately.
  • JAWS Inspect now supports the /UseJAWSUserSettings command line argument. This command line argument instructs JAWS Inspect to not pass the /default command line argument to JAWS regardless of the value of the UseJawsDefaultUserMode setting. This is especially useful when used with the /FullJAWS command line argument.
  • The look and feel of the various Using the Full Page Report pages that are accessible via the “Help with ${Element}” links in the Full-Page Report has been improved.

Note: It is not necessary to have JAWS screenreader installed to run JAWS Inspect. However, if you are a JAWS user you can run both applications at the same time, provided the versions are compatible. If you are going to do this, please upgrade to the latest version of JAWS 2021 or later.
