Hello all,

I am sorry to be such a stick in the mud but this idea of JAWS Home and JAWS
Pro is absolutely asinine.

FS already extracts sufficient funds from us to cover both.

Hi Laura,

The question of running JAWS under "Home" or "Pro" depends on the JAWS
license you have. If it is Standard license, you cannot use JAWS under Pro
versions of Windows. If using Pro license, then you can use JAWS on any
version of Windows after 2000. The supported OS based on JAWS licenses are:

JAWS Standard: Windows XP Home, Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium,
Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium.

JAWS Professional: Windows 2000 Pro and server editions, Windows XP Home,
Professional, Tablet PC*1, Media Center*2, Windows Server 2003, Windows
Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, Ultimate, Windows
Server 2008, Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise
and Ultimate.

*1. A tablet PC is a special laptop that allows users to interact with the
operating system with pen and touch screen input. A special XP version,
called Windows XP Tablet PC Edition exists to deal with this type of
laptops. This is essentially XP Pro base with tablet functionality, thus
requiring JAWS Pro to run.

*2. Media Center Edition is another version of XP that is used with advanced
media devices, such as TV tuner cards, advanced video recording and so
forth. Just like Tablet PC Edition, it is essentially XP Pro with Media
Center application, thus you need JAWS Pro.

As for Windows 7, users confirmed compatibility with JAWS for Windows (at
least version 10).

Hi listers,

     I am using Jaws for windows on my machine at home using XP home
addition.  How much would it cost to upgrade so that it can run on XP pro?
Why can't jaws work on XP pro when having jaws for windows on my machine
that has XP home?
