[access-uk] Re: Jaws & Magic - anyone use them?

Phil,

I think that Freedom Scientific - or maybe it was back in the days of
Henter Joyce - bought MAGic and have been gradually bringing it closer
to JAWS with each release. That's why there may still be
incompatibilities. It's surprising to me, for instance, that you need
MAGic 11 and JAWS 9 if you want the magnification to track the virtual
cursor - something I would have thought was fundamental to a combined
speech and magnification package.

Hi Dave,

Great, glad to finally find someone who does use it (smile!).

Yes you would've thought as they're both developed by the same company
that
Jaws & Magic would work seamlessly together, I note this is what FS are
claiming is more the case with Jaws 9 and magic 11.

Many thanks,

Phil

Well Phil,

You're wrong! I use it.  Before my eyesight deteriorated to the point in
which I required a screen reader, I used to use Dolphin Lunar. and then
Zoomtext.  When I was assessed by the RNIB, JAWS and Lunar were
recommended,
but Brian Hartgen of T&T Consultancy, soon discovered they do not work
together.  So Lunar was switched for Zoomtext, and those nice people at
Dolphin, gave a full refund! However I did have some problems using JAWS
and
Zoomtext, so it was switched again to Freedom Scientifics MAGIC, which
works
better, but I still believe even though JAWS and MAGIC are both made by
Freedom Scientific, that they still don't live together as well as one
might
expect.
Personally I believe FS should fully integrate JAWS and MAGIC into one
product.
HTH

Me again,
 
Doing some digging around on speech / magnification options and
wondering if
anyone out there is or has ever used Magic from Freedom Scientific?  I'm
not
planning on using it myself and I'm aware of other solutions like
Zoomtext,
Supernova etc but I must confess although I've heard of Magic I don't
think
I've ever come across anyone who uses it....so go on prove me wrong!
 
Thanks,
 
Phil
