RE: JAWS 64 bit Beta anyone?

I couldn't say. As I said, I'm sticking with a 32-bit OS for the time being.

Bruce,
        I wouldn't attempt to use any of my music apps in 64.  But, how
about things like Outlook Express, Word and Skype in 64?  If 32 bit Vista is
truly necessary, even for just those apps,  could I do this as a dual-boot
system?  I did that with 3.1 and 95 back in the day.
Thanks for the prompt response,
Kevin

The 64-bit version of JAWS is out of beta. You may wish to buy a 64-bit
computer, but put a 32-bit version of Vista on it, just to be on the safe
side. This will, at present, probably give you the greatest access to the
greatest number of programs, as currently programs are still being revised
to work under 64-bit Vista. It is the way of the future, to be sure, but
the future is not quite here yet. If you buy a 64-bit computer and a
32-bit version of Vista, then you should be ready when the time to upgrade
comes. It's what I would probably do at this point.

Dear All,
   I'm rejoining this list in an effort to learn if anyone knows
anything about the new JAWS 64 bit Beta.  I've restrained myself from
replacing my laptop until I have confidence that JAWS can work in a
64bit environment. Once it does, I can buy a cheap laptop with a
built in video cam and start doing Skype video and other things.  I
don't want to buy another XP laptop when that's clearly not where the
rest of the world is.  My current laptop is a relic and is in
desperate need of replacement.  any info greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Kevin
