I do not know for sure, so please ask them before you buy.

This sounds fantastic! Does it also play blu-ray disks?

The only fully accessible player I know of is from IRTI, and costs $29.95
via download; $59.95 if you want them to ship you the install CD. It works
on whatever DVD player you have attached to your computer or built-in. You
can activate a movie's audio description track without sighted assistance.

Although you can use the software player just fine with JAWS running, it has
its own voice, and works best in that mode, so when you bring up the
program, it is best to put JAWS to sleep by either exiting JAWS, or better
yet, putting JAWS to sleep with the insert key space bar, then s.

Here is the link to all the info. You will for sure want the instruction
manual, which IRTI can give you, also by download or email attachment.

I am using it with Windows 7. As mentioned above, any JAWS version is fine,
since you can use the player's built-in speech.
