Re: Is it possible to run JAWS and NVDA at the same time?

There might be another reason to run both applications on the same system.
In anticipation of a new windows 7, 64-bit machine, I've been researching
whether Win7 can support the external synthesizer Dectalk Express. It
appears that both NVDA and WindowEyes work with this synthesizer on Win 7
64-bit systems. It isn't clear whether JAWS can, but there's a website from
which you can download a driver that is supposed to enable Dectalk Express
to work with 64-bit Win7. I won't be able to test it until I have the
machine, but in case anyone else wants to try, here's the link:

Point well taken!
I wanted to have JAWS running while installing and starting NVDA.
By the way, I ran them together and it was a jumbled mess!
Thanks for all the responses.

Well, I guess you could sleep jaws in some programs and use nvda. but
again, why?

I am deaf in one ear and I had both, NVDA and jaws going at the same time
by
accident and it drove me bonkers lol.

You want 2 hot keys: Alt-control-J for Jaws and Alt-Control-N for N.V.D.A.
It is also possible to run several instances of Jaws at the same time and
together with N.V.D.A. you would have quite a cacophony of voices. Also,
N.V.D.A. and Jaws read text in a slightly different order and of course,
different voices. I have actually ran both and the result is very
difficult
to follow. I suppose one could even throw in a demo of Window Eyes,
Kurzweil and Open Book to name jus a few other speech programs--just to
see
how many you could understand at once.

Yes it is but for me its very confusing to hear two voices. LOL.
