Re: Jaws 12 or 13 & windows 7?

Windows systems are not much cheaper if you include office. But my Macd
experience is limited. But if I had to start over, I would go with the Mac,
the cleaner set up is very nice, no tower. But in a year or two who knows
what will be the best.
Another advantage is anti virus, but if you did internet and email in linux
you would have the same advantage.

John, this is all very well, but Windows systems are cheaper, and in my
experience there are more inaccessible apps on the mac.
Cheers
Alex

Hi Lorin
If you have the choice, I would go with the Mac system. Upgrades and
software are cheap. And once you buy an application, you get the upgrades
with no cost. The last operating system upgrade cost $29. Many totally
blind do well with Voice over, the Mac screen reader. But a more powerful
screen reader is available for the Mac for $250.
For an exttra $100. you can get all the one on one training you want in one
hour sessions for a year.
In our area the training is good, but I saw emails where the training is not
good.
Once you learn it, you will save money, and the hardware seems to be very
drillable.

Hi,

Would Jaws 12 or 13 work with Windows 7 and has anyone used Windows 8 with
Jaws 14?

I have to buy a new laptop and wonder which OS I should buy or switch to an
Apple where I don't have to shell out money for upgrades of software like
Jaws, but can't afford any less accessibility as I am totally blind.

Any advice please, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Lauren
