I couldn't agree more! Why should I have to shedule time with my 
wife, or whoever, to install something on my computer? I'm not a 
great fan of Windows, but at least jaws now speaks to you from 
the moment you put the CD in the drive. It is absolutely not 
necessary to get anyone to help you install Jaws. 

Come on guys let's have a system that talks from as early on as 
possible. It is still a source of irritation that I cannot access 
the bios setup on my pc without sighted help, but at least when 
things get going the operating system comes up talking.
