Supported Software

These scripts are written for TeamViewer version 9.0 and JAWS 16 and later. They may work on other JAWS and TeamViewer versions, but this has not been tested.

Script Features In Brief

These scripts provide the following features beyond those available in TeamViewer itself:

System Requirements For JAWS Users

There are no known system requirements for these scripts beyond those for TeamViewer itself. However, JAWS versions older than 16.0 may not work with these scripts.

Script Installation Instructions

To install these scripts on a new system:

  1. Load JAWS if this has not already been done. This will require administrative privileges on the PC.
  2. Run JAWS as the user for whom the scripts are to be installed. This and the following steps must be performed for each user of the PC who will be using JAWS with these scripts.
  3. Run the script installer and follow its instructions.
  4. To verify successful installation, type Ins+Q from within the application. Part of the JAWS spoken response should be a revision number. If you do not hear a revision number, the scripts are not correctly loaded.
