Freedom Scientific announced today that JAWS® 11 would Offer Improved Security and Interoperability under the Secure and Compatible Braille Display Initiative.
The goal of this new program is to follow Microsoft's move to signed drivers to improve security and compatibility for customers who use a Braille display with JAWS. Under this program, Freedom Scientific will test Braille displays to ensure compatibility with JAWS and then digitally sign the driver. Starting with the JAWS 11 release later this year, only drivers that have been digitally signed by Freedom Scientific will work with JAWS.
