Re: Learning specifics with Jaws

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)

FS has a series of tutorials on its site, over and above those that come preloaded on the disk.  That’s how I learned to use the Office ribbon, for example, discovering it was not merely as bad as I had imagined.

Subject: Learning specifics with Jaws




Could somebody please recommend the best way/resource to learn how to do specific things using Jaws?  For example, changing email passwords, learning how to use MP3 player to take archived webinars, becoming more proficient with using Microsoft Word, uploading or downloading, i.e. resume, and other various specific things so I can be more independent and help myself to be more competitive in the work force in the process of searching for a job?  Does the department of vocational services help with these things or does it depend on what state you’re in?


I’ve spent many, many hours Googling and trying to find ways to learn how to do things on my own with Jaws ...... I’m becoming very discouraged and frustrated with trying to achieve these goals.  I would greatly appreciate any input or suggestions that any of y’all can provide.


Thank you,



Ps – I use Jaws 15, Windows 7, Microsoft Word 2010, Outlook 2010, and Internet Explorer
