      I too have experienced difficulties running Jaws and Zoomtext toghether when
      was learning computers back in 2000. I was also running Zoomtext 7.0, and I
      think it was Jaws 3.5. It could well be that they run well together if you
      have later versions of both.

      Best wishes to all on the list
