[Athen] Compatibility between Windows 7 and assistive tech?

If your campus is moving to the 32 bit version of Windows7, I suspect
you won't see many problems.

If the move is to the 64 bit version, you'll need the newest versions
of TextHelp, NatSpeak and ZoomText. If you're providing JAWS via
network, that will need an update as well. As I avoid K-3000, I can't
speak for that product.

Your best bet is to contact the vendors directly. We've had some of
the installers not work properly in the 64 bit environment but nothing
that couldn't be solved via phone or email support.
