Re: Brother Multifunction Printer Software and JAWS

Hello all,

I have only had one experience with a Brothers "all-in-one" printer.
Unfortunately, it was not a good experience. This was a lazer printer. My
problems involved addressing envelopes and printing them out. I had
difficulty getting the addresses in my address file to come up
automatically, when telling the computer to choose the envelopes option.
Then when I did get the address typed or to come up and tell it to print,
the envelopes came out all crumpled up. I was told by Staples, that this
could be due to using a poor quality envelope. Well, I've never had that
experience with any other printer. I returned that printer and am now using
a Canon "all-in-one. The printer I now have, does have raised buttons, but
there are still some issues involving setting the scanner options, as the
choices are displayed in a window.

Thanks for asking that question; Brad. In a few months I intend to replace
this computer; get the latest JAWS and multi-function printer. I too would
like input about the most JAWS accessible printers.

I'm considering a new printer. Right now I have a brother laser printer,
and it is top notch, but it is a printer only. I'm looking at a
networkable all-in-one. I know I won't be able to read the display on the
printer itself, but my understanding is that Brother multifunction units
come with some sort of Brother MFL software. I would assume, perhaps
incorrectly, that I could use that software to set my preferences when
making photocopies (two sided or one sided for instance), and I could
control the scanning process from the software rather than from the
printer's LCD display which I couldn't read. Does anybody currently use
the Brother software, and is it accessible? I have JAWS 15 on Windows 7
64-bit, and I'm reasonably computer savvy provided the controls read and
don't say things like, "Button" "button" and "button." Have you had any
luck with Brother multifunction units?

Thanks in advance,
