Some of the drivers are for sound and video devices.

Some of the drivers are system drivers, while others are notifications for 
updating drivers and support files for my IBM laptop PC.

I have gone to the manufacturers web sites for the various products but, as 
fellow listers will have also experienced, a lot of them are to say the least, 
difficult to navigate.

I have tried 3 or 4 different driver updating programs, with reasonable 
accessibility using access technology but, I always seem to come across a 
situation, for example, where a program might prompt you to press the "SCAN" 
button, but there is no button on the screen that JAWS can recognize as a 
button, to let you know it is there, even using the JAWS cursor.

So, if anyone on the list, knows of an update driver manager program, that is 
accessible using JAWS, I would really like to hear about it.

  Hello there;

  well, I'm assuming in that list of drivers which need to be updated are, 
sound, video,
  you can, update these through your device manager,
  through the windows update page, and choose software,
  or, you could go to the manufacturers web site.

    Hello Listers:

    Recently, a friend of mine reinstalled Windows XP Pro on my IBM laptop.

    Over the past few days, I keep being told that I have drivers that are out 
of date, and recommending that I update them as soon as possible.  I then get a 
list of drivers that need to be updated.  However, no update wizard runs to 
enable me to update the out of date drivers.

    Can anyone on the list, recommend an inexpensive  or free update driver 
program, that is accesible using JAWS, that will scan my computer and install 
the necessary drivers?

    Thanks in anticipation.
