What is the reason for buying a Mac? If
you just want too run windows on it you will spend way more money
going this route and wont see any better performance.

Hi there everyone. Thanks for answering my question. If I get
a Mac and install Jaws on the Windows side how can I make my
keyboard work like a Pc? Or would you recommend to get a
Microsoft Keyboard? What would you say about the Touch screen
Support in Jaws with regards to the Mac? Is it sensitive enough
and if I get the Mac with a Touch Bar what is the recommendation
in this situation for installing Jaws?

I second everything said here. I’ve had two different
MacBooks that were bootcamped one had Windows 7 and now the
current one has windows 10. On both I loaded a key mapping
program because I wanted the option of having keys like
home, end, and delete as separate keys the behaved the way
they do on a PC. I did not find a need to remap the control,
alt, or Windows key. I just got used to it the way it is
laid out on the computer it’s self. Jaws on my computers
uses the caps lock key as the JAWS key. Again no problems
with this. There are a couple of key mapping programs you
can download them for free and test them out for yourself.
When you switch to the Mac side of the computer the key
mapping program has no effect. Also if you’ve never done
this before be aware that you have the option of having the
bootcamped windows side of the computer as the default boot
up rather than the Mac.
I will make a comment that I’ve observed about doing
this from the windows point of you. That is it it is a
very stable computer. It boots up fast and shuts down
quickly. It is extremely rare that anything locks up on
this computer when I’m in windows. I also have done a lot
of jaws script writing using both of these computers and
there has never been a problem with jaws.
I have been using win10 on bootcamp with jaws
for a while now, there are no issues or
limitations as such,but the keyboard layout will
follow macs layout,that is
fn,control,option,cmd, in windows case,that key
would be the win key. which may take a bit
getting used to.
Or of course,you could use a tool like Sharp
keys,to change the keyboard layout to the windows
style, this wont affect your mac side of things.
