Here's what we've found to work with JAWS and Magic:
First of all, it's important to have the latest version of magic and
JAWS (at least the latest version you are authorized for)

Second, I've found that it's helpful to install JAWS first, then MAGIC.
 For some reason, JAWS must be launched first, and then MAGIC.  Thus
far, it must be run from a system administrators account to run
properly.  I've been working on a solution, but haven't had the time to
research it fully.  It's a big issue for a lot of our students, so I
will eventually have to figure it out.

 What is needed  is a real,   and recent listing* of video
cards that "have been tested" with concurrent use of JAWS and MAGIC in
somewhat recent time. What exists is a  very very  old list of video 
cards
tried   solely  with  Magic *-not ever  tested with concurrent use of 
MAGIC
&  JAWS.
When one asks,  one is told  about  very old  video  cards used with  
MAGIC
solely.


It is  no secret   that  a lot of people have  tried  using   JAWS 
and
MAGIC concurrently  as that would boost  efficiency--since about ten of
them
have written to me or have  returned my phone calls interested in
knowing
the  answer  in 4 days  alone!
