It's even worse than 16 gb, the max you can order on apple store is 32. Would love to get my hands on one...

That's cool as heck. How many GB does the Pro hold? Isn't it something like 16 GB now?

Yes and I have smile. Like I said I have 8gb of ram on my mac pro and I've allocated 2 and I've tried 4gb as well. I've also tried combinations of 2 and 1 processors with above amounts of ram. I also believe I tried a 1gb vm
but that wasn't a goer.

Are you able to allocate more than two GB of RAM for a given virtual
machine on that Mac Pro?

Hi Sara,

I am using Windows xp pro.  Yes, I've tried 2gb and 1 processor as
well
although the processor shouldn't make a difference as I have 8 cor
on this
mac pro smile.  I just came back from a trip away where I had to use
my Mac
mini and Jaws was so awful for what I wanted to do I took it off and
put
Wineyes on.  It worked great then.  Having said that, if people are
having
good success with jaws in their virtual machines then great stuff.
I know
that I wouldn't touch jaws in a vm again.  It's been good as I've
had to
learn Wineyes and it's not that bad.  I hope though that wineyes 7
will work
ok in a vm.

Hi there. Hmmm, that's too bad. I don't know anymore ideas...oh
wait, which
windows are you using? I've had terrible problems with sluggish
speech from
vista because of bad sound drivers which made me give up vista...but
I had
them with Window-Eyes so that's probably not it...
Did you try it with 2gb and 1processor?

Hi Sara,

I've tried 2gb as well but because Jaws was sluggish, I went to 4gb
but no
go.  Mind you, wineyes had no probs both using 2 or 4gb.  The
version of
jaws I'm using is 9.

I'm only guessing here and totally don't know what I'm talking
about, but
I'd actually suggest trying 2gb ram. I heard or read somewhere that
32-bit
os's can't really use 4gb anyway. Don't know if this could cause
trouble
but

maybe worth a try in a test virtual machine? Also, the version of
jaws
might

affect it?
I love and have both but sometimes it's a matter of what people
bought
first

and can afford etc.

HI,

Sure people are using Jaws in fusion.  But there is a difference
to using
Jaws and actually doing something meaningful with it.  I mean Jaws
works
fine for me if all I want to do is wander around the screen and
type a
few
documents in notepad etc etc.  But audio work and using apps that
put a
load
on the processor is not a goer for me.  Don't get me wrong, I love
Jaws
and
would be the last to say it didn't work for me cause I'm not a fan
of
Wineyes usually but I can only tell as I see it smile.  If Jaws
works for
you then fine.  Oh yes, and I am running fusion on a mac pro with
8 gb
ram
two 2.8 4 cor processors.  My VM is configured to use 2 processors
but
have
run it in a vm that has 1 processor.  It is configured to use 4GB
Ram.
Yeah
I think if Jaws was going to work that'd be enough power for it?
Oh yes,
I
have all of my VMS in full screen.

David et al,


Jaws is fine with Fusion.  I discovered I needed to be in full
screen,
so problem solved.

Hi,

Advise what?  It's a pretty broad question.  Personally I wouldn't
worry
about Jaws under fusion.  I think Window Eyes works the best in a
fusion
virtual machine.  For me, Jaws ran very slow and when intense
activity
was
taking place, the eloquence of Jaws stuttered and became distorted.
Also,
Jaws crashed a bit as well.  I have had none of these problems  using
Wineyes.

Hi,

Can anyone please advise?  Thanks,

Ray

When I run Fusion, I hear Jaws but any key stroke has no effect on
Jaws.
