Yes that is fine. The problem is the client's version of JAWS must have Remote Access authorization and must be runnming JAWS Professional. Without this JAWS cannot be used in terminal sessions. The version of JAWS running on the server cannot use its own authorization. So even if you are authorized on the client's computer you will still not be able to use it in terminal sessions without the Remote Access option. Hope this helps.

I'm writing on behalf of a friend. I know this question has been addressed,
but I didn't need to know for myself.

How do you obtain remote desktop access to a work computer on a home
computer. The route my friend's company uses presents the remote access as
an image that, of course, JAWS cannot read. Is there a way around this?

I asked my friend what program her company uses for remote access. All she
could say was that a technician used an existing setting within her XP Pro
computer to make the connection.

I hope I've given sufficient information for someone to provide answers.
