GW Micro released public beta versions of Window-Eyes version 6.1 beginning on January 30, 2006 which was also the general release of Microsoft Windows Vista. This is the first time in computer history when an MS Windows-based screen reader was available on the same day as a new operating system. The final release of version 6.1 will follow shortly, but this series of articles highlights features which apply both to the public beta as well as the final release of version 6.1.
In the previous NFB Tech Tip we discussed the Windows Vista Start Menu and some of the new features that offers. In this article we are going to continue with some other, new Windows Vista features and describe how Window-Eyes provides the screen access you need.
