Re: Portable Version of JAWS, How To

Howdy Bro,
 
Like I mentioned, i dug that note up and I know I copied / pasted the info into the saved file but, how long ago, God only knows!  It would be appreciated if someone could add to this thread in case the way to run a portable JAWS has changed or if it's even possible any more with the newer JAWS versions.  Thank you for your input.

Hi Mike,
I noticed that there are no download links for Jaws, just the video
intercept.
I looked thru my notes, and only found 1 executable for portable Jaws and
that was version 15.

HTH,

Hi Teri,

I found this information buried in my notes and hope the steps still work:

The following briefly describes how to first download and install the thumb
drive application, second, download the video intercept driver, and third,
start

the thumb drive application on another computer.

Application Download and Install

1. Plug your USB thumb drive into your computer's USB port.

2. Select the appropriate thumb drive download link (32-bit or 64-bit) that
appears at the end of this procedure.

3. When the dialog box opens, choose Save, and select a location on your
thumb drive where you can easily find the downloaded executable file.

4. Run the downloaded executable file and extract the files to your thumb
drive.

5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 if you are installing both products.

Video Intercept Download

1. Select the appropriate video intercept link (32-bit or 64-bit) that
appears at the end of this procedure.

2. When the dialog box opens, choose Save and save the file to the root of
your thumb drive. (If needed, this file will let you install the video
intercept

driver on any computer that does not already have it installed.)

JAWS/MAGic 32-bit Video Intercept (32.8 MB - FTP download)

JAWS/MAGic 32-bit Video Intercept (32.8 MB - HTTP download)

JAWS/MAGic 64-bit Video Intercept (34.4 MB - FTP download)

JAWS/MAGic 64-bit Video Intercept (34.4 MB - HTTP download)

Start Thumb Drive Application

1. Unplug the USB thumb drive and plug it into a different computer. Windows
automatically displays a dialog box asking what action you want to take
next.

Select "Start JAWS" or "Start MAGic" and then press ENTER.

If this dialog does not appear, press WINDOWS Key+R, type "X:\JAWS100" or
"X:\MAGic110" (where X is the drive letter assigned to your thumb drive) and

press ENTER.

Note: If the video intercept has not been installed on the computer, choose
the Cancel button when the Autorun dialog box displays. Next, press WINDOWS

Key+R, type "X:\FSVideoIntercept.exe" where X is the drive letter assigned
to your thumb drive), and press ENTER. This installs the necessary JAWS and

MAGic video components on the computer. You must have administrative
privileges to install these files.

2. You can now use JAWS or MAGic just as if it were installed on the
computer's hard disk drive. Any settings changes that you make are saved on
the USB

thumb drive so that you can use them next time. When you are finished
working on the computer, quit JAWS or MAGic and remove the drive from the
USB slot.

Take care, Mike.
