Moderated Re: A Question About JAWS Accessibility

Hello lynn


I use jaws with Citrix VDI on a daily basis. 


First you need to purchase the jaws remote desktop license.  Now what I am not sure of is if this license is available for the home edition or if it is only available with the pro version.  VFO sales would need to confirm.


Once the license is installed then the remote server will need to have jaws installed.  This install does not need a license and is a free install.  Once you connect to the VDI, your client license will be used.

And on the VDI, jaws needs to be running.


In  the jaws help, there are a list of commands that can be used.


Thanks, Abraham

Hi Lynn, 


I have successfully used JAWS with a virtual desktop.  JAWS needs to be installed on the virtual desktop as well as your "personal" desktop.   I cannot recall the keyboard commands to switch between desktops but it does work.  If you want to email me off list you can do that.




Best, Lee Anne

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there.  I am currently job hunting for transcription jobs I can do from home and some of them say that my computer needs to be able to run virtual desktop interface.  Does anyone know if that is accessible with JAWS?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.
