Re: Jaws 13 and Windows XP Pro?

Tom Lange

At my previous job, all of our machines were XP Pro, all networked, and all, with the exception of a couple that were used by upper management, running JAWS.

JAWS was installed locally on each machine rather than pushed across the network, though it used a network license. On all of these machines, the login window was completely accessible.

So, if I were you, I'd have one of your company's I.T. guys pay you a visit, completely uninstall JAWS, including shared components, reinstall JAWS and, I might add, do all of this while the I.T. guy has Freedom tech support on the phone to assist with such matters as the video intercept issue if it arises.

Something must not be installed correctly then, because we use the Control Alt plus Delete method to log in.
However, prior to entering this key command, I am given the prompt that Jaws for Windows is ready.
But, I do not know when I can enter the Control Alt Delete command.
And, when I am told to, by a sighted person, I still cannot tab through the user name, password and enter fields.

I beg to differ. JAWS 13 will speak during the logon frame in either a

JAWS 13 does work with Windows XP, except the login screen. If you want
access during the login screen you have to have Windows Vista or windows 7.
I would recommend they uninstall JAWS completely and make sure that all
Freedom scientific folders are taken out of the program files on the local
drive. It may require a local installation because some components might
need registering with the operating system such as DLL files. A remote
install just dumping files into the program files directory will not work.
The video intercept needs to be installed before JAWS is installed, not the
other way around.
Hope this helps,

Does Jaws 13 work with Windows XP Pro?
Also, my employer just installed Jaws 13 on a Dell laptop for me, but
everytime I shut the computer down and turn it back on, we get the Jaws
Video Intercept error. It prompts us to either view, install or uninstall
this component. Of course, we have attempted installation several times,
without success.
The installation of the Jaws wsotware is being done remotely, by the IT
people downstate.
Not sure how to proceed with this.

We also have to log into the system, with our user name and password, but
Jaws does not speak during this process, and I don't know how to remedy this
