JAWS Scripts and Other Resources For Tween

General Information

This page is laid out for easy navigation via JAWS:

Resources for Tween and OpenTween users, besides the JAWS scripts described below, are listed in a separate Tween Resources document on this site.

Version 1.0

These scripts support both Tween and OpenTween, from now on collectively referred to as Tween unless differentiation is necessary. As of August, 2016, the scripts focus primarily on OpenTween. Documentation of script usage and features can be viewed by typing Insert+F1 twice in quick succession from within either application while these scripts are running.

This script version is dynamic, meaning that updates to it will be made "in place." Newer revisions will replace older ones, and I will add change notes to this section as changes are made.

Here are the changes in this version, most recent first. In JAWS, use the h or 3 keys to move through changes by release date, or Tab to jump straight to the download links.

This is a very major script update and replaces all previous support for Tween with new scripts for Tween and OpenTween. The following change list is far from comprehensive and is only meant to assist those who used the previous (2015) scripts for Tween. For full details on this release, consult the JAWS Scripts For Tween and OpenTween users guide.

Changes affecting users of the original Tween scripts:

Revision 12, released June 11, 2015

Ctrl+Shift+D moves focus to an HTML area containing the tweet. This is useful for the form of retweets in which the original tweet text is not present but is replaced with a link to the original tweet itself. At least in OpenTween, this material can also be viewed natively via the g and Ctrl+E commands.

Ins+Q includes the revision number of the Tween scripts, to ease verification of correct script installation.

Revision 7, released September 9, 2012

This is the first public release of these scripts. Features included:
