The lady at the disabilities desk says I can use my 2007 version
if I have the activation key, but I will probably be missing some
features. Since I am not missing anything that I normally use, I
don't see a problem with using my original version. There's a
$100 savings already, grin. Thanks for the idea.

I’d suggest calling Microsoft
accessibility to double check that Office 2007 will run on
Windows 10. I am fairly sure it will, but it wouldn’t hurt
to double check.
Thank you, Richard. I am trying
to get someone to go out with me, grin, but I may try Dell
and see what they are offering. I don't use Office enough
to warrant paying for the online version. I mainly use it
so I can open documents with Kurzweil. There must be a
program that opens a particular file type before Kurzweil
can open it. Otherwise, about the only thing I use Office
for is creating address labels and an occasional

We use Del Latitude laptops at my office.
They have been very stable and reliable
over the years.
They are Business class, so they run
around $1300 and up.
Those of us at work that use Jaws have
found 8 GB to be plenty, but if you can get 12, why not.
I've not use an SSD drive, but I've
heard they are great and so much faster.

It seems that most computers have 1 TB

If you go with Office 2016, the office
365 subscription also gets you 1 TB of OneDrive space.
My wife, who is sighted, recently
bought a Del Inspiron laptop and loves it. It was only
$480 with an I5 chip.
I would recommend the I7 chip for the

I must get a new PC. I am looking for suggestions for
one that will meet the best use criteria for speech.
Is 8g ram enough or should I get 12? Should I get
both SSD and SETA frives? If I neeed SSD, how large
should it be? Generally, which would be the best
brand? I know this is a personal choice. I have had
Dells for the last two computers and am wondering if
something else would be better. I have Office 2007.
Can I use 2007 on a win10 system or Should I get
2016? My current PC is almost 8 years old and is
beginning to do some wierd stuff, so I thought I had
better take care of getting a new one before this one
Finally, does anyone use a hybred and what do they
think of it. I know I do not want a notebook, so it
must be either a hybred, a decent laptop or another
desktop. Thanks for any suggestions. Oh yes, I would
like to get one on sale today, grin.
