Hi Dave,

I'm a bit behind on my email, so apologies for the late response! No, I'm
not speaking from personal experience... I've never tried Windows 8, but,
when I listened to the Freedom Scientific podcast on Jaws 14, I think they
mentioned that one needed Jaws 14 in order to be able to use Windows 8. I
also read others on this list saying the same thing.

I'm just about in the market for a new laptop or netbook, so may soon be
using Windows 8.

Windows 8 wasn't available for testing when JAWS 12 was in
construction and revisions I suspect.

Jaws 12 will not work with Windows 8.

Good morning list:

I will be updating to Windows 8, but am tired of trying to work with
the ribbons in Office 2007. Will MS Office XP work on Windows 8
using Jaws 12?

Thanks in advance.
