RE: Jaws and Toshiba laptop - does it work?

Hi,
I, too use Toshiba laptop with JAWS (which served me pretty well when I produced Vista tutorials several years ago). As already said, it does not matter which laptop you use as long as it has supported Windows operating system (Windows 200 and onwards) installed, as well as flavor of JAWS you are using - pro or standard. Pro can work with all Windows versions after 2000, but standard is limited to Home versions of XP and Vista (that is, XP Home, Vista Home Basic/Premium). Also, for obvious reasons of compatibility and updates, I recommend that you use latest graphics driver for the graphics card to ensure JAWS soothly working with graphics systems.
Cheers,
Joseph

I use a Toshiba laptop part-time and it works just fine.

That used to be the case. But with the advent of Vista and JAWS
versions
that work with Vista, that's not so much the case. Reason being
JAWS
installs its own video software to serve as an interface between
Windows and
the screenreader itself, so it relies less on the card in
question.

Hmmm,

I was asking because I have seen some graphics cards that cause
Jaws
problems. Thanks for your response. I figure a mainstream
machine like
this should work too but...

The make and model of laptop doesn't matter, so long as it runs
a
supported version of Windows. That becomes more true if you're
running
JAWS 10.  So yes, that particular model should work.

Hi,

I am considering purchasing this machine but am curious if
anyone else
has used one with Jaws.  If so I'd like to hear that it worked.

specs:

graphics: Intel GMA 4400 M

I am sure the rest of the machine is ok.

Thanks.
