I will try doing a reinstall though.
I'm still not sure why you went from JAWS standard to pro? I mean, if you're using windows xp professional then yes, you need the proper authorization from FS to get this to work. If you have JAWS 7.0 and windows xp home, why not just download and install the proper version of JAWS 7?
That's JAWS standard, 7.0.
The direct link for that is
You should also not need sighted assistance to install JAWS, the instalation program will speak you through the instalation. I'm guessing you either had a faulty instalation, perhaps a sighted person was unfamiliar with JAWS and didn't know what they were doing, but either way, a definite re-install is what needs to happen.

I cannot solve your problem, but it will work, it does here on one of our computers.

It's Vicki here again.
I have a Jaws 7 Pro question I am hoping someone can help me with.
I am using Windows XP home edition and was previously using JAWS 5.1 Standard.
In the last couple of days I upgraded to JAWS 7 Pro as I was told that this version would work with Windows XP Home Edition.
When I installed it, I was asked to shut down the computer and restart it so the necessary changes could be made. I did this and installed Jaws with
When the computer restarted it worked fine and Jaws spoke.
I also set Jaws to start up immediately as soon as windows started up.
Later, when I tried restarting the computer again, Jaws would not speak. It would start up automatically but would not speak.
I checked to make sure that the speech wasn't set so that it didn't speak at all and it was set to speak words so don't see a problem there.
Just wondered, does anyone have any idea as to why it might not be working?
