[jawsscripts] Re: FW: jaws version 6 vs 9 and mainframe access

Hello,

I'm a JAWS developer and have been working with mainframe applications since 
1997.  You did not indicate which Windows version you are using on either 
computer and what is the installed memory and graphics adapter.

Some things to look at:

1. Does the computer have problems connecting with the mainframe when JAWS is 
not loaded?  
1a. If it does have problems get that fixed first.
1b. If it works fine, then verify the graphics adapter driver to be the latest 
for that OS level and that the JAWS Video Intercept has been reinstalled after 
the graphics drivers are updated.
3. Make sure the you are using the correct version of JAWS for the OS and that 
you have the latest version installed.
4. If using Windows XP Pro SP2, then you should have at least 2GB or more of 
memory to support JAWS and XP SP2.
5. In the mainframe application verify that JAWS is reading the text properly, 
you may need to change the font for best results.  I use Lucida in all 
Attachmate versions. Screen resolution is also important. JAWS has problems 
above 1152 x 864. 

Most script functions will carry forward to later versions; however, there is 
usually some modifications that will be needed above JAWS 6.

Hope this help you some,

Rich

I have notes and scripts for the IBM Reflection_  3270 terminal 

and I am quite sure that the scripts are for jaws 8 and 9

would this be of assistance? 

regards, 
inthane
