Dan Clark of HJ issued the following statement
regarding JFW and Lotus Notes in response to inquiries from Assistive
Technology specialists at the U.S. Department of Education.
I think between what Lotus plans to do, and HJ plans to do, we may get this
package working yet. .
"We have had some discussions here at H-J regarding the accessibility of
such programs as Lotus Notes. As you know, we are coming out with a true
32-bit program of JFW, which will be version 3.0. It will have several new
features, such as frames, that are designed to help make programs such as
Lotus Notes more accessible. We hope to have this version available by May
Just for your information, we are working on a deal with the Social
Security Administration on a similar project. They also use Lotus Notes,
so you can gather that this is a major priority for us, especially having
several major clients asking for JFW to work better with it (smile)!
However, we won't be able to devote much time to Notes until about July,
maybe September, because of the release of 3.0 & NT, as well as the extra
work with SSA. Also, we don't want to say that we can "fix" Lotus Notes in
total, but rather that we are going to take a step-by-step approach to
making it more accessible, and hopefully we'll be able to make some decent
The main thing I wanted to communicate to you is that we are committed to
make JAWS for Windows the best program available to people and
organizations such as yours. You can count on us to continue to refine and
develop JFW to meet your needs. And hopefully, it won't be that long
Thanks again for your interest in JFW and we look forward to continuing to
work together towards our common goals! Talk to you later,
Dan Clark, Sales Manager
