moderated Re: Question about JAWS at job interviews
I think offering pen and paper is something no employer would have a problem with, but that is magnitudes different from expecting somebody to buy a Jaws licence and have a laptop ready for somebody who comes in for an interview and who may or may not get the job.

I would never expect an employer to offer a laptop as an interview tool.
If you go to an interview, and you expect to take notes; you should take your note taking tools with you.
A sighted person would not show up and expect them to provide a pen and paper.
If the job interview involves some kind of testing, then that should be accessible unless the interviewer doesn't know you have a disability.
