Being new to windows 7, how does one install in compatibility mode? Second, can 
I do this with Home Premium? What do you all think, is it worth upgrading to

  Subject: win7 Jaws and talking dictionary

  Hi all!
  Since windows 3.1 I've been using a really nice and Jaws friendly talking
  dictionary which is American heritage v3.5 and I've used it until XP. Just
  got a new computer with windows 7 today and of course I cannot install it
  anymore. I have windows 7 home but am willing to upgrade to pro if it would
  make it work again. But the really good thing is if I were to find a speech
  friendly dictionary and thesaurus that will work with win7 off the box. Does
  anyone have any suggestion?
