RE: JFW on a thumb drive

ILM couldn't work on a thumb drive because the authorization is computer-specific. Dongle-type authorization is hardware-based and would also not work on a thumb drive.

Thanks Mike.  If you can't have the authorization on the thumb drive, it
becomes less interesting.  It would be great to have the authorization
on the thumb drive so then Jaws becomes much more portible.  I wouldn't
think it would be any more subject to piracy either.

Thanks.

FS says that you need at least a 128 MB thumb drive.  I have both
Magic
and JAWS on a 256 MB drive.  The authorization is not on the thumb
drive, it is on the computer.  When JAWS starts up, it looks for an
authorization on the computer, if it doesn't find one, it runs in 40
minute demo mode.  If you have a dongle, you can use that for the
authorization.  Here is a link for the info on their website.

Hello list,

I don't really know about this capacity in Jaws7.0.  What size thumb
drive would one need to use this ability?  I presume you install Jaws
and authorize it on a thumb drive that you can take from computer to
computer?  Can you use a synthesizer other than Eloquence such as
Dectalk Access 32?

I'm interested in this option for use at home.

Thanks for any information you can give me.  If there is a detailed
description in the documentation, point me at it and I'll read myself.
