[access-uk] Re: U3 Flash Drives

How do you know which software is U3 compliant, does it always state this is the case?

Hi Caroline,

A screen reader, or any application for that matter, has to be
especially compiled as a U3-compliant package.  The only screen
reader that is currently U3-compliant is System Access.

All the best

Steve

Hello Ibrahim,

Thank you for your reply.  Do you know whether the U3 software is
likely to be screen reader compatible?  Presumably each manufacturer
has their own implementation of U3, so this might be difficult to
answer.  I suppose, if I

found it inaccessible, I could always remove it as you indicated in
your message.  It sounds as if it might be useful though,
particularly the ability to password-protect the contents of the
drive.

Caroline.

Hi Caroline.

Yes, U3 is a system for allowing you to install software directly on
to your flash drive and then using that software on any computer you
plug the

drive in to.  There are a great many U3 applications available
ranging from password and data vault programs, antivirus utilities
and the like to

full blown business software programs such as word processing
applications, email clients etc.  The u3 software already preloaded
on to your drive allows you to manage these applications, however if
you want you can remove u3 by downloading the u3 removal tool from
the support area

of u3.com.  I hope this helps you and by all means ask further
questions and I'll do my upmost to help.

Subject: [access-uk] U3 Flash Drives


Hello,

I am looking to replace an ageing flash drive with something more
spacious. Today I received an e-mail from Amazon advertising a
SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB U3 Readyboost Flash Drive for £9.99.

I realise that Readyboost might be useful for increasing available
memory

in Vista, but wonder whether the U3 aspect of this drive would be
likely to cause problems with Jaws.  I haven't had chance to look
at a U3 drive before, but understand they have some extra software
installed which enables you to run applications directly from the
drive.  If this is problematic for Jaws, is there any way of
removing it so that the drive would work as a standard USB flash
drive without the U3 capabilities?

Thanks,

Caroline.
