As I use ancestral quest in combination with both Jaws screen-reader and
Magic screen magnification, I may be able to offer some advice but I can
also think of someone in America who I believe is using Jaws only in
combination with Ancestral Quest, so I'll see what I can do myself, but I
may pass on your query to the other Jaws user I am in contact with via the
ancestral Quest e-mail list.
BTW, to keep traffic to a minimum on this list, feel free to write to me
privately if you would like me to send you the subscription instructions for
the Ancestral Quest e-mail list.
I have just about given up with Family Tree Maker 2014 and Jaws 15. However,
I seem to be having some success with Ancestral Quest (basic) and Jaws 15.
Is anyone using this combination and, if so, can you offer any advice, e.g.
keystrokes, etc? Also, does the full Ancestral Quest programme offer much
more than the basic?
Thanks in anticipation.
