Re: does jaws work with windows 8.

I have tried NVDA but find the irritating and hard to understand and
the keystrikes a little little complex than I like. Also, I was able
to load the same Jaws disk without buyihng multiple copies to put onto
my laptop and desktop, one running 32 bit, the other 64 bit but both
Win. 8. I honestly had the Classic Shell installed but didn't know how
to use it. I tried reinstalling and wonder if I did it right, since
the normal tiles don't show up anymore when loading my desktop. do you
know what I mean? They only show up when I do certain files, but can'
can't nail down the specifics of how to access them when on this
desktop mode. Is this normal or is esthe tiles as before. Even the
serach search charm disappeared when trying to put Claasiic Classic
Shell on . IS this normal forfunctionality or did something bad happen
to my desktop?

Jen or anyone else,
Have you tried the classic start for windows 8, so it works like win7?
On one of my computers I have windows 8 pro 64 bit and I installed it,
however on that computer I am not using jaws, can not afford to put jaws
all my machines.
So I am using NVDA on it and works well, was wondering if anyone has tried
it with jaws

yes, but only with the professional version, which his what I have. IT
is pretty proficient and there are a vfew shortcut keys to locate
foldres and such,j and unfortunately without the use of a mouse, much
tabbing involved in the menus. I'm used to it now and it's a little
slower but it does work. I'm learning the ropes on it, to. Win. 8 is
new to me..
