Jaws works over teamviewer, but I'm not sure how to exit
the teamviewer session if you're in full screen apart from
restarting the target machine.
If anyone has any hints on this let me know.
No, I mean using JAWS
over Teamviewer. I know it works just fine if a sighted
person’s doing the driving.
Well, I have windows
10 home and it worked just fine with team viewer 13 as
of the summer of last year when I had a session with a
sighted person. I was running the latest JAWS and
obviously she was not. Since then I use the JAWS
tandem. The other person broke down and installed JAWS
19 on his computer.
This is true. You can
connect from Home to Pro just fine, though. RDP server
isn’t available on 10 Home. This is why I was curious if
JAWS would work with something like Teamviewer. I
haven’t tested it yet, and may need to email VFO about
it, but if you’re already using Home it seems almost
pointless to upgrade to Pro just for RDP. I mean I’d do
it, but only on my equipment. I do tech support for the
parents, though, and I wouldn’t make them upgrade to Pro
just so I can remote in if I didn’t have to.
only true if you have Windows 10 Pro. Home won’t let
you connect unattended to another Home computer.
allows you to connect to your computer provided you know
your home computer’s IP address.
You probably also
have to set up port forwarding in your router to allow
the connection and of course you have to make sure
Remote Desktop is enabled for the computer you want to
If you don’t have a
fixed IP address which for a home connection is likely
you would have to set up something called a “dynamic
DNS” which allows you to set up an easy to remember name
and if your IP address changes the service will
automatically update this so that the name you set up
still works, below is a website with more information:
Lastly, if you use
Jaws you may have to contact Vispero, I think Remote
Desktop may not be something which works with a basic
Jaws license, if I go to Jaws > About it says the
following in addition to the version information etc.:
I work from home a
bit. I wanted to know if I am at work on my work
computer is there a way I can access my home computer?
What would be a good accessible solution?
