I would ask them to install Jaws for you and give them the
Jaws key to put onto it.

Subject: How do I approach an employer regarding
installing JAWS on a PC they're giving me for my job?
I’ve just been hired as a customer service
representative, a work from home job. For my work, I’ll be
using a PC that they’re providing. I’d try to convince them to
allow me to use my laptop, but I have to use their headset to
do my job, and I suspect it wouldn’t work on my system. I
think it uses Windows 10, but I don’t know the version. With
all this in mind, I’m hoping to install JAWS on it. I do,
however, have some questions to ask.
First, how do I approach them regarding
installing JAWS on the PC? I don’t know much about Narrator,
and I do know more about JAWS, so that would make me more
productive from the start. I would rather not bring up the
A.D.A. unless I have to.
My other concern is installing JAWS itself.
Since this PC is specifically for work, I suspect they have
limited what can be installed on it. What do I need to tell
them I need to install it?
I get this PC on Friday, and my training
begins on Monday morning. The good news is I have all weekend
to sort this out. The bad news is I think there won’t be
people who can help me that work there over the weekend. This
is why I’m writing this note tonight. I have all day tomorrow
to get advice and ideas.
Thanks in advance.
