i've used the mPower as a bluetooth braille display using window-eyes. you
need to pare the two devices, computer and braillenote.  then you need to
see what port your bluetooth is using and set window-eyes as the braillenote
either with our without keyboard input and select the serial port that your
braillenote is connected to.  mine was connected using com4.

as far as jaws is conserned, there's a keyboard emulater driver for jaws on
the humanware web sight. www.humanware.com/7_0 there's a document that
explaines how to set jaws up.

Here's a direct quote from that document.
"1      Usage
Connect your BrailleNote to your PC using a serial cable. If you are using
Bluetooth, pair with your PC and activate the Activesync service. Configure
JAWS to use the serial or Bluetooth port to which the BrailleNote is
connected (for example, COM1), and restart JAWS. From K "
