JSay works great and is worth the price. There are a couple of issues with
The JAWS activation needs to be on the computer that JSay is installed on.
In environments where network licenses are used for JAWS this can be
problematic. To do the installation some of the licenses from the network
install would need to be setup as single installs.
JSay is usually a little behind on getting it to work with the latest
version of JAWS. When 14 comes out the student will be stuck on 13 for a
while. Not a big problem.
It is really easy for a good JAWS user to learn the commands for JSay.
The commands are a little different from the commands you are used to with
Dragon. So if you are teaching the student how to use it spend a little
time on reading the documentation. The documentation is very thorough and
easy to understand. Back in the Spring I set it up with Dragon Legal for a
law student that is blind and has bad arthritis and the student loves it.
