Ed,
You are correct.  If you need remote access either with Citrix or Remote 
Desktop, you will have to pay the price and stay with the Pro versions.

  OK.
  My information may be just a little dated, but I'm pretty certain that, to 
use remote access software, such as Citrix, one needs to have the Pro version 
of JAWS.
  That, I believe, was the deciding factor for me.  So, even if you are using 
JAWS at home, if you need to access your work system, you may need JAWS Pro.
  Your best bet is to contact Freedom Scientific.
  Best of luck.

    Lori, so that you understand the difference between the two JAWS offerings, 
the pro version is designed for networked computers and for systems typically 
used in networks, such as XP. The practical effect is that FS charges 
organizations more for JAWS than it does most individuals for home use. 

    All things being equal, as everyone in this thread has said, you would 
choose the standard version because it is cheaper. However, the real question 
is whether you get more out of your XP system than XP Home. I hope listers will 
comment on this aspect of your concern. I can say only that I've gone with JAWS 
Pro because it assures me maximum flexibility, but money concerns can 
legitimately trounce that factor

    Lori,
    Home users don't ordinarily need Windows XP Pro.  In addition, if you 
upgrade your JFW to Pro, not only will you have to pay more now, but you will 
have to pay more every time you purchase an SMA.  If you should upgrade to 
Windows 7 in the future, be sure to get Windows 7 Home Premium for the same 
reason.

      Hi I'm trying to activate Jaws 11 on my home PC, and although it came up 
activation successful, when I tried to exit I got a message saying something 
like "Jaws is not authorised to run on windows opperating systems, windows XP 
or Proffessional, please contact Freedomscientific support for advice".  I did 
and was told I could iether downgrade my system to windows XP Home adition, or 
else upgrade my JAWs to 12, which would work fine with Windows Profferssional.  
The problem is it'd cost me about £300.38.  Does anyone else use JAWS with 
Windows XP Proffessional, and if so is it worth the upgrade?  I don't know 
whether to just go for the upgrade and pay the extra money or whether to get a 
more basic version of XP.  I'd be grateful for any advice on this before I make 
a choice.  Many thanks from Lori duncan.
