Hi Mo,

Actually, you don't need admin rights.  If you don't have them, it will fall
back to using UIA only, no video intercepting will be done.  So it would be
like running NVDA, which is UIA only.

All the best

Hi Paul.

Yes it is, but you need admin rights and extra software installed, it's
called video intercept and enables jaws to read the screen. NVDA if
configured correctly behaves in much the same way as jaws does in many
instances, you only notice the difference if there's an app that NVDA
doesn't support that jaws does.
