Sorry I can't help Susan re JAWS but I am confident that it will work well.
I do not know where you obtained your copy of JAWS from but if it was from
Blazie Enginerring, then they have a Tech Support helpline.  Tim Burgess is
excellent when it comes to Tech Support.  I think you will get him at
alain.desouza@xxxxxxxxxxxx  You should be able to copy and paste that link
for your e-mail address to Alain.  I am sorry I cannot help further re the D
V Ds and audio description.
