Re: Citation managers that are accessible with JAWS

Do you mean programs like endnote?
I have at times used msword 2007 to do citations and get references right
but I haven't played with it enough to get it to work. Endnote is apparently
very good but I haven't tried it out for its accessibility capabilities, but
if anyone else has I'd love to hear a verdict. I found it tricky to get APA
to work with MSWord 2007/10 but I know it potentially does, so it was more
likely I was being daft, and I decided it would just be quicker to use my
own brain.
I just do it all from my head and I have never had any formatting problems
with it. I don't think it's valid to say "I can't do it because I'm blind"
but I do think it's valid to say "it's more difficult because I'm blind".
That doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Hi Chris,

I am a social work major hoping to help people with disabilities (not just
blindness) cope with their loss and learn skills that would make them
happier and live independently. I am not trying to get out of doing the
work, but the work load is so drastic right now with papers being tossed at
me from everywhere, and I thought that having a piece of software that will
help build the reference page would help me out. I worked on the reference
page of a paper for 3 1/2 hours the other night. That is why when this guy
told me about a citation manager, I was kind of excited, yet fearful,
because we all know about cool sounding software that is not very JAWS
friendly. Thanks anyway.

Hi Alicia. What are you taking? just curious.
Anyway, I wish I had some useful info for you. A program that
automates the citing process would be handy. Hopefully someone else
will speak up here.

Maybe K1000, Openbook and the other OCR program manufacturers could
build a feature that generated most of the citation and
bibliographic info automatically.
