I like how the BrailleNote works as a display with Window-Eyes. But,
Window-Eyes has better braille support than JAWS.
I hated how the braille note worked as a display with my computer, but if you want to try it this is how you do it. Go to your start menu programs jaws and hit enter on tools. In that submenu you will find an item called installation maintenance. When you run that it will act a bit like a jaws installation, but you can choose modify. At some point in the setup you will be presented with a treeview of additional things that can be installed with jaws. First there is a list of synthesizers, and then there is a list of braille displays. Just choose braille note from the list. When it is finished you will need to start jaws, but before you do, connect your braille note to the serial port you chose. If you use the serial port for active sync you have to remember to uncheck the box that says allow serial connection to this computer in the connection settings dialog in the file menu in active sync. . You can just recheck it when you need to use active sync again.
For information on how to actually use commands to control the display you can look at the help provided in jaws. Just go to the jaws help menu and choose help toppics. There is a "jaws and refreshable braille displays" book, which will give you general information on using a display, and under that there is an option called other braille displays, and in there you will find a toppic specifically about the braille note. I hope that helps, because I don't actually know any of the many commands available now.
