Re: Help getting into a computer.
Your question, while not stupid, is, well, a little odd. It's nottoggle quoted message Show quoted text
called "JAWS for Windows" for nothing, and if you've never heard of
"JAWS for Linux" or "JAWS for OS10" or "JAWS for OpenVMS" for that
matter, it's a pretty good bet that the answer to your question is a
big fat nope.
Now, to answer your and others' questions about Linux accessibility,
it's quite good. There are two screenreaders for it, and it comes
bundled with them both. Orca is the screenreader for the desktop, of
which there are now two. Speakup is the screenreader for console
terminal mode. Orca can also be used in the desktop's terminal window
which is not precisely the same as console terminal mode but which
offers most of the same abilities and capabilities. Seeing as how I'm
straying wildly from the main topic of this list, and before I get the
topic cops on me, I cordially invite you to
http://www.vinuxproject.org where you can learn lots more about
accessible Linux, download and install it for yourself, join a mailing
list, and, in the words of Eric Clapton, find out what it is all

At the risk of asking a stupid question, will JAWS work under Linux. I think I made some inquiries about that years ago. I know most mainstream apps will work with the help of an add-on. I'm sure many of you know what I'm speaking of, but I can't remember the name right now--Bootcamp?
