Fusion Suite 2024 Is Here

The article below was originally posted by Elizabeth Whitaker from Freedom Scientific.

After a successful Public Beta, Fusion Suite 2024 is now officially released! Fusion Suite refers to the Freedom Scientific software products JAWS, ZoomText and Fusion.

You can visit the What’s New pages for JAWSZoomText, and Fusion 2024 to learn more about this exciting new software.

Experience New Features

New features of Fusion Suite 2024 include:

  • Face in View: This new feature in JAWS and Fusion helps you focus your camera before participating in a video call. JAWS enables you to modify the camera image to center your face, look directly at the camera, ensure adequate lighting, and add or leave out other people or items in the view.
  • Split Braille: This JAWS feature enables you to split a line of content on your braille display into two halves, one on each side of the display. This feature enables you to view content from two different applications or locations, such as buffered text and annotations. Two vertical lines between the two halves separate the content.
  • Inverted Mouse Pointer Scheme: This ZoomText and Fusion feature inverts the pointer and background colors, making the pointer easier to locate. For example, when moving the mouse pointer over a black background, the pointer will turn white, providing the contrast you need to locate the pointer while the text remains visible.
  • Single Wedge Cursor Enhancement: This new ZoomText and Fusion feature displays a single triangle below the cursor, making the cursor easier to locate.
