Tina,

Unless you have purchased a JAWS professional version, you cannot run it on
a machine with XP professional.

64-bit does not really apply with respect to professional versions, but
perhaps the only version of 64-bit XP is a professional version -- someone
else will have to address that question.

Fascinating thread. Are 64 bit and professional synonymous? Someone
gave me a PC running the professional version of XP, and since my
current PC running XP Home Edition has finally developed more issues
than I have the time, money, and/or inclination to sort out, I'd like
to try it, but I get an error message when I try to use JAWS 11 on it.
Any suggestions?

Cordially,

Richard,

I don't know of any 32-bit programs that won't run on a 64-bit system,
although I suppose there may be some. But, that is what the
Programs\x86
folder is for, that's where the 32-bit programs that run in Win 7 or
Vista
64-bit editions live.

Jaws is available in either 32 or 64-bit editions. If you have the Jaws

installation DVD, it will recognize which version you need for your
system;
if not, just go to the FS site and download the correct version.
Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.

32 vs. 64 bit has to do with the way the computer physically addresses
the
data; literally 32 or 64 pieces of information at a time (specifically
that many ones or zeros at a time-- that's what a "bit" is, a one or a
zero in binary computing. Multiple bits comprise a byte. Enough bytes
make
a "k", then megs, gigs, etc.)

You must run the correct bit OS on the appropriate processor.
Applications
vary. You can run some 32 bit applications on some 64 bit machines
which I
assume requires some sort of emulation mode by the OS which may be
transparent to the user. 64 bit applications won't work for 32 bit.

JAWS 9 was 32 bit only. At the time that was out, Freedom told me they
had
no intention of supporting 64 bit machines in the future. Once most
new
machines started going 32 bit, they changed their tune a bit. (Pun
intended.)

I assume current JAWS has a dual installer that works on both? I know
both
are currently supported one way or another.

to switch the autocomplete off in the address bar:
1. Go the the advanced page of the internet options dialog
2. In the Settings tree view, there's the item Use inline autocomplete ..., which by default is on. Spacebar toggles it on and off.

Hi Jim, I don't think your on your own because I have notice with IE that
Jaws 12 which is what I'm using doesn't always copy and paste it into edit
boxes. So what I mean is that because I often can't spell a word I try my
best to type it into google and when I find it on a link if I copy and then
go back to the search box and paste it jaws won't paste what I have
previously copyed to the clip board.

On top of that I can't reproduce it. It sometimes work and other times fails

completely.

You must run the correct bit OS on the appropriate processor.
Applications
vary. You can run some 32 bit applications on some 64 bit machines
which I
assume requires some sort of emulation mode by the OS which may be
transparent to the user. 64 bit applications won't work for 32 bit.

JAWS 9 was 32 bit only. At the time that was out, Freedom told me they
had
no intention of supporting 64 bit machines in the future. Once most
new
machines started going 32 bit, they changed their tune a bit. (Pun

I assume current JAWS has a dual installer that works on both? I know
both
are currently supported one way or another.

Re: Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

That's okay, I never migrated there anyway. I'm still dancing with the
one who brung me. I have one program that's o old it was written prior
to Win95, although I bought it in the fall of 1998. It doesn't' even
add itself to the registry, but has an old-fashioned INI file. As you
can see, I really get all the juice out of good hardware or software. I
won't upgrade until the machine either no longer meets my needs, or
repairs are no longer cost effective. So far, this desktop hasn't cost
me a nickel.

Re: Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit

Richard Holloway
 

It is all a Mess. PC or Mac, I try and get the newest, most powerful setup I can get and then I hang onto it forever, changing only what I must to minimize future disasters.

This laptop I'm on was a killer-fast Macbook when it was new; fastest Intel MacBook available. Now it is a bit on the slow side, but it has lasted me for 4 years. I could have gone cheaper and replaced it sooner but I find it is worth the extra cost to buy deluxe and basically "drive it 'till the wheels fall off."

Problem was my plan backfired in this case (the JAWS setup). When I got the first machine, having asked ahead, I intentionally got the industrial version of a 64-bit machine while the old 32-bit systems were deeply discounted and clearing out. By the time, I returned two machines, all the "deals" had escaped and I had to custom order a machine at full price.

Oh well...

2006 sounds about like the right timeframe. I may have mentioned the
wrong NFB convention, it could have been Atlanta. It was going back-and
forth between Atlanta and Dallas back then.

It was a real nightmare for those of us to which it happened, and the
people at Freedom were disappointingly unconcerned about solving the
problem on their end. I do not exaggerate when I tell you they said "we
have no plans to support 64-bit hardware", and they made it clear they
meant with JAWS 9 or any future releases. Obviously, they got past their
hesitation, but it would have been quite a wait to get a 64-bit version
of JAWS back then; a year or more, I suppose.

It isn't like this hasn't happened before with similar migrations from
8-bit to 16-bit to 32-bit, and with all of the other major changes like
drive access limitations, RAM limits, etc., but maybe that was the first
time it happened with a Freedom Product? Vista had just come out and
there were like 6 different versions of that as well, so there was much
confusion in the marketplace. Actually, I think Vista came out in
January of 2007, so I expect this was Summer 2007.

We had already ordered a PAC Mate so there would be seamless use of JAWS
on both platforms and so we could use the braille display from the PAC
Mate on the computer, etc., so we were feeling awfully committed to this
financially and then all of the mis-info began to catch up with us. Had
we just spent that many thousands of dollars for a solution that was
effectively "broken" before it even arrived at our home?

All I know was I was a sighted and rather braille-needs-clueless parent
of a blind child, just coming of age to start having computer needs and
it turned into a really expensive and time-consuming fiasco. I've dealt
with computers professionally for over 20 years now, but in this
situation I was entirely at their mercy-- basically the only game on
town (or the only real "player"), especially based on what was available
and the information we had back then.

My level of concern is probably less warranted with today's technology
situation, but it is hard not to advise others to be really careful
about assuming it is a simple as tossing something into a special folder
and the problem will solve itself.

It used to be the case that 64-bit systems couldn't support very
easily
32-bit programs, and the other way around. Mostly that was due to the

those programs weren't written with the possibility of 64-bit systems

Subject: Re: Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit


32 vs. 64 bit has to do with the way the computer physically
addresses
the
data; literally 32 or 64 pieces of information at a time
(specifically

that many ones or zeros at a time-- that's what a "bit" is, a one or
a

zero in binary computing. Multiple bits comprise a byte. Enough bytes
make
a "k", then megs, gigs, etc.)

You must run the correct bit OS on the appropriate processor.
Applications
vary. You can run some 32 bit applications on some 64 bit machines
which I
assume requires some sort of emulation mode by the OS which may be
transparent to the user. 64 bit applications won't work for 32 bit.

JAWS 9 was 32 bit only. At the time that was out, Freedom told me
they
had
no intention of supporting 64 bit machines in the future. Once most
new
machines started going 32 bit, they changed their tune a bit. (Pun
intended.)

I assume current JAWS has a dual installer that works on both? I know
both
are currently supported one way or another.

Hi,
I have Jaws 12, but have reverted to Jaws 11 as 12 was crashing too
often.

I'm afraid I need to think seriously about a new computer.

I'm still with XP Home.

Can someone tell me what would be the major difference between
Windows 7
32 bit or 64 bit?

Thanks.
Crystal
