thanks to those who replied to my message.  I now have the new computer and am 
beginning the process of getting used to a new version of Windows and a 
slightly different keyboard.

I am seriously looking at alternatives to my present screen reader, but feel 
that I don't need to rush things.  I have a laptop onto which I can install 
other screen readers (one at a time) to try them out.

All the best.

  Mislabeled  subjects aside, I hope you consider  some of  the other 
discussion that took place  before you invest further in  Freedom Scientific 
for what is an increasingly disfunctional product. I recognize people like to 
stick with what they're used to sometimes  though.

    Hi Ken,

    Thanks for your replies to my original query on this subject.  My fears 
were confirmed.  I'm getting the new computer tomorrow, and I'll have to use a 
40-minute demo version of JAWS 11 or 12 until I sort out the upgrading of my 

    I note that quite a lot of discussion on other subjects has occurred under 
my original subject line.

    All the best.

      Hi Listers,

      I must replace my 5 year old computer, and the new one will have Windows 
version 7.  What is the first version of JAWS that will support Windows 7?  I 
am licenced for JAWS 9, but not later.

      I have spent quite a while today searching the JAWS website for this 
information, but without success.  It must be there somewhere, but I somehow 
missed it.

      Any information would be very much appreciated.
