Faronics Insight 7,7,4 Now available.
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 27 February 2014 03:37 AM

Insight 7.7.4 is now available from Faronics Labs for download.

This version includes the following enhancements:

  • Support for Windows 8.1 tablets with touchscreen interface (supports Blank Screen, Limit Web, Remote Control, Show Screen etc).
  • Support for scaling settings when either Teacher or Student is on a tablet (supports Show Teacher/Student with font scaling 150% scaling).

As some of our customers have found there is an issue that was present in previous versions of the Insight product that prevented us from being able to block web browsing with Chrome. This release was tested extensively on Google Chrome version 32 and the issues where confirmed as resolved at that time, however in the last few days however we have seen an updated release of Google Chrome (Version 33) that once again breaks the ability of Insight to control web browsing in Chrome.

Our developers are continuing to look into this issue and will provide an update once we have more information. If you would like to be kept up to date with the status of this issue please contact the support team and we will open a ticket to keep you up to date as the situation develops.
