I also herd that getting jaws and Dragon to work together can be a real bitch. As others have said it does work but it is very hard. I herd like others have said that you need some sort of a bridge program like j say or something to bridge between jaws and dragon. I have never used jaws and dragon but did look into it years ago around a deckade or more ago. From Mich.

I understand that it appears that Dictation Bridge for JAWS is a product, but it does not in fact work. Lucy Greko, one of those who spearheaded the project, confirmed this when I met year last year. The project ran out of funding, and development was still necessary for the JAWS version. I think some people can use it, experienced users, but it is not for everybody as the project intended.
Hi. A free version of Dictation Bridge is also available for JAWS.
Hartgen Consultancy has two solutions for using JAWS with Dragon. J-Dictate is for people who want to use Dragon for dictation into programs such as Word, Outlook, etc., who are comfortable or able to use their computer keyboard.
J-Say not only allows for voice dictation but it allows a user to completely control their computer with all commands, both for Windows as well as for JAWS. The programs from Hartgen Consultancy are specific to JAWS whereas Dictation Bridge has a separate addon for NVDA.
