Re: JAWS and on-the-job software

I would contact the software vendors directly. It may get you nowhere, but software vendors tend to be helpful, particularly if you drop a gentle hint about being 508 compliant.
Often, they will furnish demo software. Network packages may be another story. Still, they will sometimes let you talk to someone technical.
The key questions to ask are:
1. Is this a client/server application or a Web application;
2. Does the application use standard controls from the Microsoft Windows operating system;
3. Has the vendor ever had to deal with a customer/user with a visual impairment?
That should get you started, at least.

Subject: JAWS and on-the-job software

Hi, everyone. I am a new graduate currently looking for employment in the administrative assistant/office/customer service field. With my education and priar experience I am a strong candidate for some of the jobs for which apply, however, some of the specialty software used by these employers has not been used with JAWS by anyone in my area. Does anyone on the list use applications other than those which are Microsoft based? I am particularly interested in whether anyone has experience with MAStermind security monitoring software, and A La Mode appraisal software. Any information would be very helpful, as I have tried numerous web searches and contacted Freedom Scientific, to no avail.
Thank you so much.
Sincerely,
Emily Schlenker
