Non-Tandem JAWS

JAWS includes a unique feature that lets users on two different computers in different locations create a secure connection with each other over the internet. This is extremely useful for support and training purposes. Some organizations do not wish to allow this and would prefer to install a version that blocks such functionality. Because of this, we provide JAWS without the Tandem feature.
