Re: JAWS Portable - Can such a creature be created?

It requires (or required, perhaps) you to install the video intersept components and/or the mirror display driver before JAWS would properly function. However, I'm not sure if that requirement still exists for systems running Windows 8 or later, as the fully installed versions of JAWS no longer use those components on that version of Windows.

There is a build of JAWS that’s optimized for USB flash drives, but last time I checked, it required folks to install some components before using it.

I have a client who has been using JAWS for quite a while now and has been on version 17 since at least last fall.  He is about to begin an internship and it remains uncertain whether he will be able to connect his personal computer to the organization's network (we're hoping so, but).

I know that NVDA supports making a portable version that you can place on a USB drive or SD card, carry with, and use as a freestanding program on other machines without installing it.  I have never explored whether JAWS supports such an arrangement.  Does anyone know if it does?


A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.
