Hi, Kelsey. In addition to what others have said about Del computers with JAWS, I would advise the following.

Under Control panel/Speakers/Properties/Advanced, there may be a setting called:

Allow Hardware Acceleration of Audio with this Device

You might want to make sure this is unchecked to prevent static and stuttering of JAWS with the internal soundcard which is onboard the motherboard.

Subject: JAWS and Dell laptops

I am looking into getting a Dell Inspiron 3000 series laptop,
specifically the 3567. I have heard that JAWS does not work well with
Dell hardware. I've had a couple Dell desktops that didn't work well,
but I've never used one of their laptops. Therefore, for any Inspiron
owners, any suggestions on how to make JAWS perform better other than
changing the function keys in the BIOS? Is swapping the hard drive for
an SSD and upgrading the RAM to 16 gigs really necessary? I look
forward to hearing from anyone who uses or has used the Inspiron 3000
series laptops with JAWS. I am considering that model because it has a
number pad and optical drive whereas the Latitude does not.
Kind Regards,
Kelsey Nicolay
