[access-uk] Re: VISTA ready to go

Hi Andy. I really don't think you will have much of a problem. When I purchased my Dell Vista machine Jaws 9 worked fine. The only difference between XP seems to be the menu listing order and the terminology. For example you will not see the icon named display in control pannel. There will be an icon called eas of use instead. I'm still trying to get to grips with Vista. Just another thing you should note. When ever you download a file from the internet, The file will be downloaded in the download folder which can be found under your profile name. For example bring up the start menu and arrow down a couple until you hear welcome centre and arrow right in to a sub list which has icons such as control pannel, computer, connect to, music, documents and your name. When you select your name you will see a hoast of folders including the download folder.


I think I've given you a mini tuturial on accessing your home folders as well.

Subject: [access-uk] VISTA ready to go


Hi all.

Took the big plunge today and purchased a HP VISTA desk-top PC. It's sitting in the kitchen in a couple of big boxes and I'm planning to put it together tomorrow with sighted assistance from my wife Pauline.

I have a copy of JAWS Pro 8 to install, though I am hoping to upgrade this week to JAWS Pro 9, which will probably arrive within ten days.

So I've not done a thing to it thus far. I'm looking for some advice. For example, is there anything that I should do to the settings prior to installing JAWS. For example, I have since Windows 95 used the High Contrast Number 2 display colour option as this is less harsh on my eyes. Should I wait until JAWS has been installed before attempting to change this?

I have a document titled something like Setting up XP to work with JAWS. I have used the recommendations in this document for several years, to change settings to maximise JAWS. I was wondering if there was perhaps a similar document which would tell me how to enable JAWS to work at it's best in VISTA?

So there is a couple of questions off the top of my head and perhaps there is a more crucial modification that I need to make but don't yet know of it. Perhaps JAWS will work with VISTA out of the box, so to speak, but given past experience, I doubt it very much.

Looking forward to lots of advice.

Best wishes.

Andy.
