Hello I use Jaws 14 and Windows 8 and I am a new user. I have learned a lottoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
in the last few months and it takes time and we always learn something new
each time we use the computer. I did not touch windows 7 that much so I
have learned a lot through windows 8. I hope your father learns a lot and
good luck. Louise and Hawk

Subject: Jaws and windows 8
(Sorry for the subject line post)
I am new to this listserve and have a dilemma. My dad is 72 and completely
blind. He is not or never has been tech savy.... Meaning he has never been
on-line, used the internet, email or anything else having to do with a
computer!!! He now has decided that he wants to get "connected" so he
bought a HP with windows 8 and had the"type to learn" program downloaded. He
has spent the past 6 months learning the keyboard and has done well...Now he
want's to get started and purchase JAWS. but he is finding out by talking
to other JAWS users that Windows 8 is not very compatible with JAWS soooo
he is not sure what to do at this point. IS JAWS 14 going to work with
Windows 8...especially for someone that is computer illiterate? Keep in
mind he has no idea how Windows 7 is different from windows 8 to begin with.
Should he get a laptop that already works well with windows 7 thats seems to
get better reviews with JAWS users ? All he keeps hearing isWindows 8 and
JAWS 14 have so many problems. He is really motivated to move forward with
this and I hate to see him lose his interest when he has come so far with
learning the keyboard. Any suggestions or comments would be veryhelpful.
Thanks so much!!!! Laurie
