While I have not directly integrated Citrix environment, at NC State we use
virtual labs to deliver all types of lab environments 24/7. JAWS,
Window-Eyes and Supernova can be used to access remote (virtual) computers
using Windows Remote Access Protocol (RDP), however all three require the
application to be installed on both on the remote (virtual) and personal
computer. With Window-Eyes and SuperNova the licensed copy is installed
on the remote system and user can use a unlicensed version (demo version).
JAWS on the other hand is the opposite, the remote version is unlicensed
while the user needs a licensed *remote* enabled version of the software.
Since JAWS uses a license serve to authenticate for license, at NC State
we have our own license server and JAWS is available in computer labs or on
any computer within campus. For home use, the user needs to have their own
license or could VPN to the university to use their license.
Hope this helps
