Hi,I've used VPC in the past. The way I managed to use it was to install a screen reader on the hosted operating system. This seemed to work when I tried it back in 2005.
The only problem with this approach is that the screen reader on the host operating system won't pass on some of the keystrokes to the screen reader on the hosted operating system. This tends to be things like the keys to invoke screen reader commands. To get around the problem you can either unload the screen reader on the host operating system whilst you are using VPC, use the screen reader's command to pass a key through, or customise the screen reader.

the systems can be installed on it but the virtual machines screens are being drawn directly so no screen readers installed on the hiost machine can read screens from the virtual machines. Other than this it's a question of preferenses. As most part of things there're several sites comparing the virtualiuzation technologies, each one claiming one of them is better than other. I've choosen vmware although others can choose different solutions. Marlon 2007/11/5, Octavian Rasnita <orasnita@xxxxxxxxx>:Hi, Does anyone if Microsoft Virtual PC is accessible to Jaws? I mean, I know that the main program is accessible, but I don't know if after creating the Virtual machines they are accessible for the blind. This program is something like VMWare. The program is absolutely free and it can be downloaded from Microsoft's site. You can find it by searching for its name with Google.It could even be a better option for us than VMware, and I heard that othersystems like Linux can be installed on it.
