We have JAWS (network), NVDA, ZoomText (network), NaturalReader, and
TextHelp all part of our standard image. Apart from occasional issues with
our JAWS license server, no problems with the other apps on the image. This
is a Win7 build and we're testing Win10.

Where you can run into problems is use of a virtual machine -- apps like
ZoomText often don't work in that environment due to the nature of the
display driver.
