I know. That's one of the biggest reasons I finally just dumped JAWS in favor of Window-Eyes. Granted I didn't know that then but now that I do... He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the holy grail in the castle of aaaaggh. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

As I said Bryan, I've been doing this in Hal for ages, in games or indeed when watching dvd's sinse I can just flick Hal's voice off and use the standard power dvd shortcuts on my computer just like buttons on a standard dvd player without Hal providing any issues.

It's probably okay when you get used to it, but this keyboard snagging and unloading business with Jaws personally always struck me as a mighty big pain in the backside.

Beware the Grue!

That's one thing I like about Window-Eyes. It can still be running when a game is in progress because it doesn't monopolize the keyboard the way JFW does. And you don't even have to modify either the game or the screen reader for this to work the way you often do with JAWS. I used to unload my screen reader out of habit even after switching to WE. Then one afternoon I went to play a game of Classic Pipe and for whatever reason I forgot to unload Window-Eyes. I wasn't even aware of this until after I'd quit the game. Window-Eyes neither spoke nor caused any key conflicts. If I'd tried that with JAWS I'd have been lucky to pass the first level. And if someone messages me I can switch over and reply without disrupting the game, not that I make a habit of that.

Some people don't like JAWS though. I'm one of them. I prefer Sapi in my
games anyway if it's a choice between that and the screen reader. I can
never get the timing quite right between the action and the screen reader's
speech. So I don't bother with it.
