Re: JAWS packaging

I should also add that my jaws package (either 7 or 8) is a tri-fold.
It has the main installation media, a disc with the RealSpeak 32-bit
SAPI voices and the authorization CD (that latter is the only reason I
kept the install sleeve all this time). It does not have a separate
disc with instructions.

Or, is it that they have improved the Jaws install process so special
instructions are no longer necessary?

AT least they still include some braille information.

Hi listers:

I just obtained JAWS through my Voc Rehab office and was a little
by the JAWS package.

They used to package with an instructional CD on how to install JAWS
is still downloadable from the Web site, complete with cassette
tone-indexing marks). In the package, I found a bifold sleve containing
Program DVD and the Authorization CD, a couple Braille sheets about the
a large print document (which I assume is the quick reference), and a
Braille quick reference booklet. I did not find any instructions on
installing JAWS, unless it was in the large print document I couldn’t
Of course, I am quite familiar with such procedures myself.

I guess, by now, they figure anyone who orders it knows how to install it
and doesn’t need any help. Or, are they falling down on the job?

Any thoughts.
