Hi Ben,

For some reason I just can' get on with Narrator with a Braille Display to
do the work I need. It's the reason I'm looking to use JAWS via a flash
drive. But thanks for the suggestion.

All the best, Paul

It may also be worth considering Narrator, especially if the computers are
running Windows 8.1 or newer.
