Hello Howard,

I have been able to run JAWS 9 and 10 with VMWare fusion. You if your going to run it on a mac laptop you will need to map the insert key as laptop keyboard does not have it.

You can map keys in windows with software:

Or you can use keyboard combo for insert key:
On a MacBook or MacBook Pro keyboard, press Fn-M.
On a full-sized Mac keyboard, press the Help key.

I just use a standard usb keyboard myself and this works fine.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Being a MAC idiot (the parameters may go beyond that), I was wondering if JAWS and other adaptive software can run on a dual boot MAC. We're proposing a class on usable and accessible media design here at CU and I'm wondering if a MAC lab would work for this.

Thanks in advance,
