We have implemented the network version of ZoomText here at MSU. You are
correct in that this version requires a network folder connection to
function properly. This is a problem not only for clients that are not
in the same domain, but also for semi-independent clients such as
laptops. We are working with AISquaired to help them see this as a
problem. In an ideal world they would implement a setup such as Kurzweil
3000. This setup has the network clients attached through a TCP port
(solving the domain issue), and a "license to go" (a.k.a. license
checkout; solving the laptop issue). Perhaps if more people called
AISquaired expressing interest in such a setup they would be more likely
to implement such a setup.
