Re: Installing JAWs on Parallels

Hi Alastair,

Just a quick heads up Alastair: Be careful even if you do get it to work
as I am in a situation now where I don't trust the JAWS output because
of the same problem with the Video Intercept on my Mac. I have to do my
testing twice or get a second opinion as I noticed discrepancies between
the output that I was getting and other colleagues using the same
version of JAWS on their PC (particularly when using form controls). One
of my colleagues is of the opinion that I may not even be able to get a
driver that will function at all, so at the moment it looks bad, so
please share if anyone has gotten around this.

BTW I managed to install version 8 of JAWS but still have the driver
problem, but I didn't have the problem with it crashing my VM, (maybe if
you increase the partition size?).
