Nyheter i Zoomtext 2020

Snabbare och stabilare

Vi är glada att kunna meddela releasen av ZoomText 2020. Det senaste året har vi spenderat på att optimera programvaran och detta har kulminerat i hastighets- och prestandaförbättringar som gör ZoomText 2020 till den bästa releasen till dags dato.

I fall du använder ZoomTexts Appläsare tillsammans med Google Chrome så kommer du att notera att webbsidor öppnas mycket snabbare. Navigeringen har också förbättrats en hel del med förbättringar vad gäller funktioner som rör fokus, markör samt tangentbords- och museko. I fall du använder Gmail eller Facebook så kommer du att märka bättre markörföljning.

Tidigare när du körde Appläsaren tillsammans med Chrome så kunde det ta från fem till 15 sekunder att starta Appläsaren på dynamiska webbsidor. Med ZoomText 2020 så har detta minskats till under en sekund. Dessutom kommer du att notera bättre länk-, rad-, ord-, menings- och styckenavigering.

För att du ska kunna dra nytta av dessa förbättringar bjuder vi in dig att ladda ner och installera ZoomText 2020 idag.
