Hello Roger,
Press escape to close the tutorials window.  If that does not work, no 
upgrading to JAWS 12 is not necessary – you can use the NVDA screen reader for 
free from  Download the latest stable NVDA installer for 
Windows.  NVDA is free, open source, and almost as high quality as JAWS in my 
opinion.  It works great on my end with Sodbeans.

Hi all,

I've downloaded and installed the latest Sodbeans, read the tutorials and ready 
to get started.  However, once I've pressed escape twice to get rid of the 
tutorials windows everything goes silent including jaws.

I'm using Windows XP with Jaws 9 and have the java access bridge installed for 
use with other software.

So can anyone help?

Is there a better version of Sodbeans and some tutorials somewhere to cope with 
any differences?  I also have a Macc running Snow Leopard and could use that 
yet again, I would like to have tutorials to hand.

Desperately in need of assistance
