Updates included in the latest release:

  • Newly Extended “Say All” Reporting Functionality: Check the reading order and document structure of PDF documents.
  • PDF Accessibility: Open PDFs within your browsing session and ensure that they are accessible for JAWS users and examine your form controls and PDF workflows with the Speech Viewer.
  • Automatic Updates: JAWS Inspect now includes automatic updating. No need to go to our site and download the latest version. You can configure this option in the product settings.
  • New Export Features: Automatically save reports in HTML and JSON formats. JSON provides richer compatibility with third party systems and bug trackers. Export full reports or selected portions of reports to CSV and JSON. Configure these options in the product settings.
  • Customise Fonts: A new Font tab in the Settings dialog provides full control over fonts in reports and dialogs.
  • Improved Screenshots and Element Highlighting: The screenshot and highlighting features have been re-engineered to improve performance over a wider variety of sites and content.
  • Custom Installation: Now, with a special mode, you can customize what parts of JAWS Inspect you want to install.
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 2018 or later.
