I am a blind user who uses the screen reader JAWS to interact with my
I am considering installing Ubuntu on my PC, but since I use Windows
frequently for some things, I would like to run Ubuntu and Orca in a virtual
machine under Windows rather than as a separately booting OS (which would
mean taking a lot of time to switch OS).
So, my questions are:
1. Will a screen reader such as JAWS work well with the Microsoft
Virtual Machine (I'm using XP Pro).
2. If I can get Ubuntu to load inside the virtual machine, will the
Linux screen reader Orca be able to work inside Ubuntu?
3. Will there be a problem with two OS's (one running in a virtual
machine) using the sound output for speech?
Thanks for any info or user experiences.
