[access-uk] Re: Taking the plunge with WE after 10 years

Hi Steve.


I've just downloaded the demo but have a question about WE.

At present, I run jaws through my computer's on-board sound card, and I also 
have a Creative Soundblaster External sound card, which I use to listen to 
everything else.  I had to modify a jaws file, telling it to continue using 
the on-board sound card.  I appreciate that with the demo, the Soundblaster 
will probably be used by WE, but if I later, go ahead and swap over, can I 
have the same configuration?

Best wishes.
Andy
