I understand a third party has developed a set of JAWS scripts to make QuickBooks accessible, but I have not personally used them. As I understand it, the scripts sell for about $200.

Hi Greg.


I can't say as I've ever found one that works with JAWS very well but Quickbooks is definitely accessible and works on your iDevice.  I'm self-employed and use their quickbooks self employed iPhone app.  The desktop site is ok but I don't find it half asaccessible.  I've posted the link to the UK quickbooks site but if you need a different country such as the US for example, it is available.

hello. The good folks at www.myblindspot.com have worked to make
Quickbooks fully accessible. In addition, they've created a number of
tutorials to help you learn how to use the software nonvisually.
Quickbooks is a fully featured accounting package that can do inventory,
payroll, account management, etc. The gentleman who can tell you all about
it is Richard Kelly. You can reach him at his firstname at
myblindspot.com.
-thanks

Cash Manager by Aclaim software. I am not sure about payroll function though. You can download a demo version from there website. It is very jaws friendly.

Did you ever try Cash manager? It is aimed at the European market and has VAT and all that.

I am and have been using Sage 50 which before it became Sage 50 was Simply Accounting for over 20 years. There are no scripts, but I am able to do pretty much everything, you have to use tab a lot and sometimes the Jaws cursor. I used to do payroll with it as well, but currently use a Payroll service so I don't have to do this any more.

I own a retail business selling outdoor and hunting gear and I use of course the General journal and I also use Suppliers, the Purchases and Payments journals and look at reports all of which can also be exported to Excel (pretty standard).

I print cheques with it and it works fine, but I am not happy with Sage Accounting as a company. I actually stopped using their payroll module because the annual cost for getting the latest update which included the current tax tables was way too expensive. I am in Canada and once I started using Payworks for doing my payroll I just stopped buying updates. I am currently using the 2014 version.

If I had to start from scratch I would most likely invest in the scripts for Quickbooks although it would be nice if their Online solution would be fully accessible.

 

Regards,

Sieghard
