Hi, I have an HP Compaq Presario laptop running Vista Home Premium SP1, and 
JAWS 9 works beautifully with it. Ok, there are some accessibility issues, but 
at least they have workarounds. For example, some list views, you can't 
navigate them with up and down arrows, however you can use the JAWS cursor to 
find the item you want to highlight and click on it. This is not the case with 
all list views, but a good example can be found in the accounts dialogue box in 
Windows Mail. Hope this helps, and good luck with your decision.

  Hi all,

  I've got two queries, i hope someone's got the answers;

  First I'm about to get a new laptop.  Until now I've only used XP but 
apparently all new PC's and laptops have vista as standard.  I'm told vista 
isn't very user-friendly for jaws users.  Can anyone confirm or correct this?  
Can you use jaws on a computer with vista?

  Second I've hit a problem; i can play CD;s and DVD;s, i can read and copy 
files from CD's and DVD's, but i can't write to CD or DVD either via the send 
to submenu or by copy and paste, the drives don't even appear on the send to 
submenu.  I've put new CD and DVD writers on my computer.  Any ideas?

  Thanks in anticipation;
