Re: Can JAWS and Window Eyes co-exists on my computers?

Jaws and WindowEyes will coexist on the same computer just fine. I have both installed on several.

Obviously, you only want 1 of them to start on computer startup and you only want one to be running at any given time.

If you think you will switch between them, make sure that a shortcut key (such as CTRL-ALT-J) gets set up for Jaws as this does not happen by default as it did with WindowEyes.

You do this in the properties for the jaws icon that will get put on the desktop.

Your IT person should know how to do this, but if not let me know and I can give you instructions.


Have a nice day!

Subject: Can JAWS and Window Eyes co-exists on my computers?


I’m about to install JAWS 18 on my home computer, then will have my tech guys at work install it on my computer there.  Is there anything I need to be aware of to have JAWS and Window Eyes co-exist on my computers at the same time?  I already have NVDA installed as a backup and that does not seem to cause issues, but, since I do not have admin rights to my work laptop, I want to anticipate anything I should ask the tech guy for help with as I start the switch over process. To JAWS.
