Hi Kelly,
Out of curiosity, why do you say Jaws installs a 32 bit version on a 64 bit system?  By accident I tried to run a 32 bit installer  to my 64 bit system, & I got an error message.  I don't recall what the error message stated, but it had to installing the wrong version on my computer.  If you look in both your Program Files & Program Files X86 folders on the root of your OS drive you'll see that Freedom Scientific folders in both, but only if you are running a 64 bit system.  If you're running a 32 bit system, I forget which 1, but you'll only have 1 of the Program folders, not both on your OS drive.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I also have noticed that the DVD installs the 32 bit version of JAWS
even though my machine can run 64 bit software. If you want to ensure
that the 64 bit version of JAWS is installed, then download the 64 bit
version and use the DVD as a backup without Internet access.
