Thanks,

Hi, if you wish to use a higher edition than Home Premium, you will need a
pro license. That's all I can say really. JAWS 11 is recommended, but JAWS 9
and 10 also works with few exceptions. Hope this helps.

This thread has been extremely helpful, since I HATE Vista and have
considered reinstalling XP several times. If I was to upgrade to Win 7, is
there a particular version, ie Home or Business, I should go for?  Also, I
have JFW 10, so would it be necessary to upgrade that right away?

Thanks,
Will

Thanks for that review--just what I was looking for. Where did you get the
Windows 7 text book?

Thanks,
Dennis Brown

I've been using Windows 7 for several months now.  Prior to Windows 7, I
had
Vista since its release date.  For Vista users who upgrade to Windows 7,
you'll notice a significant difference in performance.  Windows 7 manages
memory more efficiently and the operating system is more.. well, zippy is
the first word that came to mind.  Vista was sluggish and slowed down my
system considerably. I liked the many features of Vista but will admit it
had its drawbacks in memory management and crashes.

Windows 7, on the other hand, is high efficient, boots quickly and has
many
new features that I truly enjoy.   The libraries allow you to gather the
contents of folders together and display them in one view.  I have
textbooks
and works in progress in various folders and drives.  With the library
feature of Windows 7, I can display all of my work in one view.  It's a
nice
addition.

For those who liked the Windows XP menus, you won't be able to switch the
Windows 7 menus.  You'll need to get used to the Windows 7 (very
Vista-like)
Start Menu. I find it much more efficient than the old menus ever were. I
encourage you to give it a try.  I think you'll get to like it and wonder
why you didn't switch in the first place.

The Task Bar is new and improved with a lot of functionality. You can pin
and launch applications from the Task Bar.  The Quick Launch no longer
exists because the Task Bar now does all that the Quick Launch does and
much
more.  It's full of keystroke-driven commands.

The Jump lists of the Task Bar and start menu are time savers that I use
regularly.  You no longer need to open a recently used folder or open
Word,
Windows Explorer or other applications to find documents of folders you'd
like to access.  Just open a Jump List and select the option.

The Windows Search has changed and the specific search criteria isn't
accessible with either screen reader.  Microsoft did, however, offer text
alternatives that you can input into the Instant Search of Windows
Explorer.
I've grown used to them.  It kind of reminds me of the command line
interface of DOS a bit.  I've grown adept at locating exactly what I want
on
my computer by using the Instant Search with the proper parameters.  I
think
most blind people will pick it up relatively quickly.

As I finish my Windows 7 textbook, I'm finding new features hidden in
nooks
and crannies of Windows 7 that are happy surprises.  I'm glad I upgraded
and
can happily recommend to anyone tired of a sluggish Vista to upgrade to
Windows 7.  You won't regret it.
