GW Micro is proud to announce the highly 
anticipated release of Window-Eyes 7.5. This 
version of Window-Eyes introduces several new 
features, including a completely re-designed (and 
much more intuitive) user interface, full UIA 
support, support for Internet Explorer 9 and 
Windows Live Mail/Windows Live Messenger 2011, 
plus a brand new Remote Assistance feature. In 
addition to these new features, Window-Eyes 7.5 
also boasts a significant performance increase in 
Microsoft Office products, along with many bug 
fixes and stability improvements. Window-Eyes 7.5 
is also the first version of Window-Eyes to 
re-brand the notion of scripts into a more 
comfortable and recognizable term: apps. 
Window-Eyes Apps embrace a broader sense of usage 
by including everything from program enhancements 
that deal specifically with accessibility issues 
to more convenience-oriented apps and everything 
in between. While the underlying structure of 
these Window-Eyes enhancements is the same 
industry standard that has been in place since 
its inception in Window-Eyes 7.0, the concept of 
an app is more widely known, and the use of this 
term will help eliminate the confusion often 
associated with the more technical expression. 
Window-Eyes 7.5 will include a number of new apps 
that have been designed to make your applications 
more accessible and create a more enjoyable 
computing experience overall. Read more about the 
additional features and enhancements that 
Window-Eyes 7.5 offers at 
<../../Window-Eyes/Latest_Features>. Window-Eyes 
7.5 is a paid upgrade for existing Window-Eyes 
users. If you already own Window-Eyes 7.X and 
have an active software maintenance agreement 
(SMA), you will be receiving your Window-Eyes 7.5 
CD in the mail soon. Please be patient; 
Window-Eyes SMA CDs are our first priority but it 
might take several days before we are able to 
ship the CDs to all of our SMA customers. You may 
also choose to download your Window-Eyes 7.5 
upgrade for immediate installation. To download 
the Window-Eyes 7.5 upgrade, to check the status 
of your SMA count, or to determine your upgrade 
eligibility, go to the Window-Eyes Help menu, and 
choose the Window-Eyes Upgrade option. 
Alternatively, you can visit 
http://www.gwmicro.com/upgrade <../../upgrade>, 
and follow the instructions. If you already own 
Window-Eyes but don’t have an active SMA, you 
may purchase an upgrade to Window-Eyes 7.5. 
Please contact GW Micro or your local dealer for 
upgrade pricing. US customers can also refer to 
the GW Micro Window-Eyes Upgrade Catalog page 
(https://www.gwmicro.com/Catalog/Upgrades/) for 
applicable upgrade costs. Window-Eyes 7.5 
supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 
Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008. As 
of July 13, 2010, Microsoft ended support for all 
Windows 2000 products. Window-Eyes 7.5, 
therefore, will not install under Windows 2000, 
and requires at least Windows XP to run. If you 
have any questions or concerns, please contact us 
at 260 486-3671, or support at gwmicro.com <mailto:support at gwmicro.com>.
