Re: Using Microsoft Narrator to download and install JAWS

Yes, you are able to download jaws using narrator. It is what I did;
Go to the address bar, pressing alt d, and typing the URL of freedom scientific.
Now you press control f, to search for downloads
Now you press enter.
Now you press again control f, and now search for jaws, then press enter
Again, ppress control f and search again for jaws, but this time you will be pending of listening which jaws are you finding pressing control f. So when you find the version of jaws that you want, press enter.
It is all,

Maybe I’ll go the NVDA route.
Thanks again, Keith
You could also use NVDA installed on a USB memory stick. You’d have to know the drive letter of the USB drive in order to start NVDA, but you could press Windows R to bring up the run command, and then try different drive letters, i.e. E:\NVDA. If this doesn’t work, press escape, then Windows R followed by F:\NVDA, etc.
The nice thing about running NVDA from a thumb drive is, unlike Jaws, you don’t need to install video intercept or anything else.
You, of course, will need to have Jaws, or another screen reader running in order to download and install the portable version of NVDA.
