Hay,  Didn’t there use to be a program called JAWBONES that was supposed to work between JAWS and Dragon?

Thanks for making me aware of this as I did not realize that the Dictationbridge scripts for JAWS were in such an unfinished state. I hope that the project team makes this clear on their Web site.

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.
