   - JAWS Scripts should not be necessary with the Player 3.x version of the application. it is very accessible without any scripts! I have JAWS scripts available for VMware Player (free) and Workstation (about $168) that provide a little more functionality. They are more helpful if using Workstation 7.1, since it is slightly less accessible without scripts. If interested they are available at:​[[http://​mysite.verizon.net/​marangs/​VMware.html|http://​mysite.verizon.net/​marangs/​VMware.html]] ​   - JAWS Scripts should not be necessary with the Player 3.x version of the application. it is very accessible without any scripts!
