Hi all,
     I have been taking a series of Adobe Photoshop  courses and have been 
working out the right combination of JAWS features to set  read the photo 
metadata screens to find out the embedded picture parameters that  the camera 
saves with that shot.
     One module of Photoshop CS5 is Bridge, which  allows the user to view 
the metadata for each photo file in a file  folder.    
     I was surprised to find that after I registered  CS5 and rebooted, 
JAWS wouldn't work at all - in any program.
     After calling Freedom Scientific, I was told that  it might be my 
virus protection software, McAffee - the tech claimed that both  Norton and 
McAffee can interfere with JAWS.  After laboriously groin  through NMSconfig 
Startup options, the problem was the Photoshop Bridge program,  not McAffee.
     I realize not many folks on this list would ever  use Photoshop but if 
anyone hears of someone having a problem w/ JAWS on a tech  forum you 
belong to and they work w/ photos, this might help them out.  I'm  reporting this 
error in the morning to both FS and Adobe.
