good news!  let me explain clearly, sorry if unclear.

first i install wine and all packages,  winetricks and so on.

and i use storm dragon's script to get sapi working.

and then i download jaws 3.3 from the internet, and then i set the 
windows to 98. Not sure what version of windwos works with jaws 3.3 
though. I think i will try xp next time. the code is,

winetricks win98

next, i run jaws 33 installer,  wine jaws3.3.exe /silent . Maybe the 
file name is similar, but something like that. The winzip self 
extracting dialog pops up, thanks  to ocr desktop, i can read that 
message.   so  i hit enter to continue.

then doctor jaws came, and i got error. Don't enter on the error 
message, because if you did that, the jaws will be installed. The 
purpose of me trying to avoid installation of jaws is, it cant be run 
from the installed version, meaning if you use the jfw.exe and enter, it 
will complaint about video driver not install. So for now, just ignore 
the dialog and use  doctor jaws, with eloquence, working. Next, open the 
windows applications that you want, it should work hopefully! I was able 
to register super football using jaws, it reads and speaks what i've typed!

if yours doesnt work, just to let you know that i also try installing 
the msaa but i didnt get finish screen so i dont know whether it is 
successfull or not. Now, need to find the nvda portable, if i can get it 
running, it'll be great!
