From what I heard, or at least that's how it worked with me in SA, JAWS 8, if bought before March this year doesn't work with Vista, and so, just to get version 8 V I had to purchase an sma, but it includes the next two versions. The whole thing seems quite a ripoff when compared with WE, as we can only I think use Home and the other one, Ultimate and Business need pro version.

Damon it all depends on the version of Vista you go for. I think Vista Home works with JAWS Standard but Vista Business and above doesn't however this is the depending factor. ----- Original Message ----- From: Damon To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, August 25, 2007 12:07 PM Subject: [access-uk] jaws upgrade for vista? I've got JAWS 8 home basic edition. If I were to get a laptop with Vista pre-installed, would I need to upgrade my jaws package? And if so, how much would that cost?
