Lone Wolf is a sophisticated, full-featured World War II submarine simulation game, where you pit your skills against the enemy's navy and land emplacements. As commander of a World War II submarine, you are given missions that you must complete. You will be pitted against destroyers, sub chasers, and mine fields in pursuit of troop carriers, cargo ships, oil platforms, and other prey. You have full 3D-movement control of your submarine in a real-time and realistic war environment. With seventeen included missions, dozens of downloadable user-created missions, and a module to create your own missions, you will have the opportunity to experience an almost infinite number of tactical situations, and with the multi-layered multi-dimensional sounds, it will make you feel that you are right in the middle of a raging sea battle.

It is important to note, as with most simulation games, due to the number of weapons, controls and gauges under your control, some investment of time will be required before you become proficient as a submarine commander, but the learning should be all part of the fun. You will work with compass bearings and coordinates when navigating, along with angles and distances when firing your torpedoes and deck gun. It's all in a day's work when you command a submarine.

Jaws and Window Eyes will work seamlessly when using Lone Wolf's built-in support for these readers. Even if you choose not to use the built-in Jaws support, Jaws will work without you needing to make any configuration changes to Lone Wolf or Jaws. If you are using other screen readers, or enjoy one of the many Microsoft SAPI voices which are available, you will most likely want to use MS SAPI. If you do not want to use MS SAPI and have an unsupported screen reader, you can always try your screen reader using the "no screen reader" option.
Note: If you are running Window Eyes 6.1 or greater under Vista, you will need to install the following patch. Do not install this patch unless you are using VISTA.
