Freedom Scientific Releases Version 2022 of JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion

Support for Windows® 11, New Sound Splitter, Quick Access Bar, Multilingual Braille Improvements, and improved support for MS Teams and Office applications.

(Clearwater, Florida - October 26, 2021)

Freedom Scientific today announces the annual release of the 2022 versions of the leading screen access products, JAWS® for Windows, ZoomText®, and Fusion™.

In addition to Windows 11 support, significant new features include:

Significant new features include:

  • Sound Splitting for JAWS and Fusion audio output; put JAWS in one ear, with Zoom or Team meetings in the other
  • Auto-migration of user settings from prior version
  • Outlook and Word responsiveness has been further improved
  • Fusion and ZoomText performance improvements
  • Quick Access Bar enhancements for Fusion and ZoomText users
  • Braille Profiles enhancing the multilingual Braille experience
  • Voice Assistant, Sharky and Zoomy are both working in Fusion, including both JAWS and ZoomText voice commands

The new 2022 releases build on our commitment to users working remotely with our new Sound Splitting feature. With the press of 3 keystrokes, JAWS output is sent to one side, and all other audio comes in from the opposite. Making it possible to listen into meetings or webinars, while still navigating and interacting with chat, or taking notes.

After installation, users will immediately benefit from the auto migration of their prior settings, including any braille device and setup they were using. For users who struggle transitioning to new versions, this will make that process much easier.
