Hi Dan. Have you, or has anyone installed Jaws and can a standard keyboard then be plugged in to use the keystrokes used to navigate with JAWS?

Good stuff, Doug.

I too was able to install NatSpeak Pro on a Surface Pro. Rather than trying to deal with an external optical drive, I created a .ISO file from the install media on a different computer and then transferred that to the target machine, mounted it as a drive using Virtual CloneDrive, and installed from there. This approach works very well for a number of applications, and you'll find that it's a faster experience because you're not dealing with the limited speed of a mechanical device.

I also recommend using a USB microphone to overcome any limitations of the sound card on the Surface.
