Re: Vista: To switch or not to switch?

?Well, I can tell you that vista doesn't work well with jaws. I don't know why, I just didn't got the hang of it. There's a lot of elements that just don't work well. However, I am talking vista with jaws 9. I don't know how improved jaws became with versions 10, 11 and 12. I only used jaws 9 with vista on my tranning classes. They told me that my computer was going to be vista. I fought with tooth and nail so that rehab gave me my computer with win XP. Now I upgraded to win 7 and I am loving it.

Subject: Vista:  To switch or not to switch?

Hello Everyone,

My employer is "making" me go to VISTA from XP.
Windows 7 has not been approved for use in our office. (Don't get me started
on explaining why not!)
Can anyone provide some valid reasons to use VISTA or to not use VISTA?
I am currently on JAWS 10 and have no more SMA left, so there may be the
need to purchase a newer version.
Is it known if Freedom Scientific is going to continue to support Vista?
I plan to call and get their input Monday.
I just learned about this switch before I left work, so I didn't get time to
call them this evening.

I am a computer programmer. I use 3270 terminal emulation with Reflections
11 as the emulator.
They will be setting me up with VPN for Remote Access.
I need to access a lot of WORD, a bit of EXCEL, Outlook and the Internet for
my job.

Thanks for any support and feedback you can provide.

Always,
Barbara
