[macvoiceover] Re: Windows on a Mac

If I had bootcamp and wanted to be able to use a program in Windows to create a document but then wanted to get that document into a mac app, would there be a way to do this?

I do the same thing.  I actually have more than one mac so use one in
windows and the other in Mac os and sometimes I change off. I don't want to
go to complicated here but basically, bootcamp is if you want windows and
don't have a pressing need to do too much at once or cross over among apps
and virtuallization is for those who just can't wait but end up waiting
anyway. I don't know what it is about boot camp other than that that people
are concerned about other than the fact that if you are runing a newer
computer, you won't have the numpad in windows but I haven't missed it.

I use K1000 and Jaws when I'm running Windows on my Mac.  I use boot camp
and use both Mac and Windows all the time--I must confess, I still do quite a bit of work using Win XP, but I do use Mac Leopard for non-word-processing
tasks. <smile>  I don't know if there are negative technical implications
for running a Mac this way, but it has worked great for me.  Because I use
bootcamp instead of fusion, I do have to re-boot the computer each time I
want to change platforms, but that doesn't bother me.

The windows based programs I'd miss are Kurzweil 1000 and Abbyy Find Reader.

Abbyy is an OCR program that I happen to prefer for scanning because I think

its recognition does the best job.  Its just an off the shelf program that
happens to work well with Jaws.  I use Kurzweil for reading primarily
because of its very convenient bookmarking feature and the keyword find
feature which is far more efficient than the equivalent find feature in MS
Word.
I'd also need to know if Jaws can be used while using Windows on the mac
with fusion.  (since it sounds like VO will not be usable while Windows
programs are running.)

What windows-based programs would you miss?  There may already be
substitutes available for you or such may become available.

Hi All,

I just joined this list. I have always been a Windows user, but I will be

getting a new laptop soon and am considering getting a mac.  The
accessibility of the mac with Voice Over sounds great and I'm sure I
would enjoy it once I'd get used to the difference in its functionality
as compared to Jaws and Windows. But there are still a couple of Windows

based programs that I'd really miss if I had a mac, so I have some
questions as to the usability of Windows on a mac.
I know that you can get a mac with either the bootcamp or parallel set
up.  I was told that both will allow you to also run Windows on the mac
machine, but with bootcamp you must turn the machine off and then boot it

back up into Windows, whereas with parallel you can switch over to
Windows without actually needing to turn the machine off.
I am trying to find out if you can use Kurzweil on the Windows side, and
if so, if it matters if you have the bootcamp or parallel setup.  The
other program I would like to be able to use is Abbyy Find Reader, so if
anyone has experience with that program, the same question goes.
Also, does Voice Over work while you are using Windows?  If not, can you
have Jaws on it for Windows?

These are the main considerations I have. If I would have the ability to

use Kurzweil and Abbyy Find Reader on the laptop, I would not hesitate in

getting a mac.

Thanks,

Sarah Clark
