Re: Jaws With A MacBook

Hi there. I wouldn't recommend Vm Fusion because it's a Virtual Machine that doesn't restart the computer. I know you'll that's a good thing because it quicker but on the Mac side you run Voiceover which once you switch turns off or if it runs for a little bitthen you'll get into trouble with commands and until you don't get sed to you'll be unning 2 Screen readws at once. Bootcamp devides your Computer internal drive into 2 parts that way the operating ystem you run get the complete power at once on the computer.

Is the a particular reason no one is recommending VM fusion? My intent in possibly switching to a Mac is so that I can access all my reading platforms on on machine So, I'm not terribly interested in always having to reboot when I need to switch platforms.

Why would you want to spend the money and time learning and running two totally different OS's?Nothing between the two are compatible. You would have to buy two versions of your software. Windows for instance would be a 100.00 purchase then Office for each OS and so on. Just doesnt make sense to me. :) Not saying that that matters People are free to do as they please! :) Just wondering. ;) On 10/15/2017 6:04 PM, Paul Martz wrote:
maybe I’m stating the obvious, but the reason to buy a Mac is so that you can run both Mac OS X and a second (or third) operating system via Bootcamp or parallels. I don’t think anyone is suggesting that you buy a Mac, wipe it, and run Windows as the sole OS.

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?
