Re: AVG 7.5

Gerald,
Honestly, I understand. About AVG (not ABG). I think it's annoying, too, to 
not have Jaws 9 in its latest version and have to deal with that. But I 
wrote out the entire instruction for Teddy Bear, and even that solution is 
not such a horrible hassle. I constantly find myself exiting jaws and 
relaunching it, simply because it has little breakdowns from time to time 
and stops working correctly. So I can imagine doing that, exiting Jaws, 
launching AVG, then starting Jaws again,  once a week to do my scan. But 
others may feel differently. As I said, whatever. If it were something like 
Word, which I use all day, and I had to bother with such a ploy, I'd 
probably be looking for another word processor. But it's not that sort of 
thing.

Sorry if I came across as argumentative.  But nnot all of us have the latest
version of JAWS, so compatibility with ABG is an issue of some concern.  I
just don't want to download ABG 8.0 only to discover that it doesn't work
well with JAWS 8.0.  .
