Re: JAWS question for a friend

Ted,

With regard using the OEM versions, I follow your lead. I still use an OEM 
version of Nero that I found to be much more accessible with JAWS than later 
versions, and it works very well. So why change?  Wouldn't it be possible to 
keep the install executables of these "favorite" OEM programs to use on a 
new system? Of course I'm making a naive assumption that they would even run 
on a new OS.

As far as JAWS 12 being the last to officially support XP, I would think 
that version 13 would still work on an XP machine, but that it would not 
have any enhancements or fixes specific to XP. Again maybe I'm being naive, 
or just becoming senile.

I'm not talking about JFW settings; those could be easily
replicated.  My wireless keyboard has some handy shortcut keys for this
and that, and some neat OEM programs too.  If I had to reformat, that
would all be lost.  Guess it's cheap of me, but I use OEM's of both
WinDVD and Sonic.  Nothing else on there would break my heart; I could
always get another copy of Real Player, but those two I'd miss.  Come to
think of it, I have an upgrade of WinDVD I got from the Web site, but it
may require a version to already be on the drive; I'm not sure.

Ted,

Good point. I for one would love to have that notetaker (is it the
OMNI?)
and get the barcode scanner to go with it. And then a KNFB reader for my

cell phone. Lots of toys and no sandbox to play in. Sigh.

But to keep this on topic of JAWS, what do you mean about losing all the
HP
settings? Would that happen with an update to Windows 7?

Guys, it could be worse.  I guess we can always be grateful the price
hasn't increased in direct proportion to the size.  I remember when a
handful of floppies held this sucker, and look at it now!

As bad as software is, adaptive hardware is worse.  I'd enjoy a /Sara,
or one of the cool notetakers on the market, but who is his right mind
would shell out that kind of money for what is, essentially, a
discretionary purchase!  I know the arguments about low volume and low
demand keeping the price high, but wow!

I guess I won't have to worry about 12, if the speculation is true.  My
days of regularly upgrading my OS are behind me.  Having to reformat my
unit, and start from scratch, losing all the custom keys HP provided,
jus flat isn't worth it.

Note: that last "Yikes" was in response to Mr. Dave Durbur's message,
and
not any others following on the subject of cats.

I won't respond to the messages with profanity.
