Re: JAWS Scripting for a new application


Dave Scrimenti <dscrimenti@...>
 

Perhaps I'm overestimating the difficulty, but I certainly wouldn't want to do scripting without knowing programming. If you want to know what it's like, hit jaws key plus zero in a scripted application to read the scripts.

Go into Start Menu, Jaws, Explore Jaws, and press ENTER on Explore the Manuals. That will open a folder. Press ENTER on.
No you don't need a programming background to get started.

Hello,
From where we can get these scripts?
Can anyone work on, with the scripts to make an application accessible?
How can I learnthis, so that I can do scripting?
Does scripting require any programming background?
Thank you in advance.

Hi all,
While I wrap up some last minute scripting projects, I am looking for a new
application to script. I won't be doing any financial applications or office
applications this time, but any other suggestions are welcome.
I've gotten rather quick at doing this so challenges are also welcome.
