StationPlaylist 4.33 and JAWS

Hi everyone

Since I launched the JAWS scripts for SPL Studio 5.01 particularly, something has become fairly clear, which is that there are some machines where JAWS and Studio do not interact well together for a variety of reasons.

I have therefore made the decision to prepare a set of scripts for SPL Studio V4.33, for those who wish to use them. In terms of features, these scripts will be almost comparable to the 5.0 and 5.01 scripts, although clearly there are some things I will not be able to implement, simply because of new enhancements which 5.0 gives as a native program. But certainly I have done my best to bring them into line.

The 4.33 scripts will contain features such as the ability to set focus to the list of tracks when the Enter key is pressed, enhanced arrow key support, newer sounds, more reliable reading when in the playlist viewer, revised documentation, and so on.

The licence to obtain the SPL Studio 4.33 scripts will work in the same way as for the 5.0 and 5.01 scripts, that is 25 dollars for a year's support and upgrades. Anyone who has a licence for the 5.0 series will be able to obtain the 4.33 set at no additional cost.

For optimum performance, I still do recommend SPL Studio 5.01 because the feature set is greater, and on all of our machines, including those we use for broadcasting on a permanent basis, we've experienced absolutely no problems at all. But as a fall-back position, the additional 4.33 set of scripts will be available. I'll post again as and when the scripts are ready, but given I've been working hard on them recently I don't expect the wait to be too long.

Have a great day!
