Small JAWS 18 Update Fixes Outlook 365, Edge Bugs


A small update for JAWS 18 fixes some reported issues with Outlook 365 and Microsoft Edge.
The changelog for this update is short, but these bugs are likely important if you use one of the affected pieces of software. The version fixes some crashes with the Microsoft Edge browser and the reading of autocomplete addresses in Office 365. New Research It sources for French users were also added. These changes were also made in the JAWS 2018 Public Beta 2 which was posted earlier.
Here's the short and sweet changelog for the update, which is free for current JAWS 18 users.

Enhancements in JAWS 18.0.4350 (October 2017)

The following is a list of improvements made between the JAWS 18 September 2017 release and the October 2017 update.
To download the latest release, visit the Downloads web page.
Resolved a customer reported issue with the 8400 series of Outlook 365 updates where JAWS was not automatically reading the suggested addresses when typing in the address fields of a new message. To check your Outlook 365 version, use the JAWS command CTRL+INSERT+V while focused in Outlook.
Addressed issues where Edge would unexpectedly stop working while navigating on various pages.
Added new Research It lookup sources to the French version of JAWS for two libraries for the blind in France.
