I think he gets it! I didn't sign onto this list to wade through so many mean messages. So, can we drop this now?

know something is "Off Topic" for this list why exactly did you post
it? That's kind of like knowing that something is bad for you and can
make you sick and doing/ eating it anyway.

If you Google assistive technology jobs you come up with lots of jobs.

I would probably look for training before you start teaching people
That way you can talk to other professionals, see what the different jobs
are and see if that is something you really would like to do.
If I were you I'd get my hands on every piece of technology I could so
can know what's out there. For some reason TVIs and much of the blind
community uses Pack mates or Braille Notes so those are kind of a cliché.
would learn about all the other note takers and software's so you can
people that the minority software is often much better than the heavily
advertised devices.

As for Jaws Tandem, explore the menu and see what pops up. It's under
Utility's in the menu bar. It tells you everything. But basically you get
code from the tandem center and tell your target the code so they can
it into the box that allows access to their computer.

How do you use Jaws Tandum? How does Jaws Tandum work? I am not looking
tutor people but I was writing to find out what jobs there would be as a
Jaws tester and to learn more about the assistive technology field. Are
there many jobs with assistive technology, and whhat jobs are there in
assistive technology?

Albert, you can probably tutor people privately, set your own fees etc.
If you wanted to work for a government agency, school board, or
similar employer, you probably need qualifications as a trainer,
instructor, etc. What those qualifications would be probably varies
from state to state, country to country, and maybe employer to
employer. so, do some research.

Still, there's nothing stopping anybody here from tutoring people
privately, over Skype, or using something like Jaws Tandom.
