Hi James,
 
This is always a difficult one though.  How for example, do you train
someone to use a computer, before they know the keyboard?  You have to make
some assumptions, and I think training on the virtual find, should be quite
early on in the process of teaching the web with JAWS.  But of course, this
is my personal view, and not necessarily a recommendation.
 
All the best

Hi Steve
 
yes I have purchased both of these tutorials and agree they are excellent.
I was just trying to think of the person who Graham is training though,
entering "cached" is all very well if you understand the idea of the virtual
find feature and if you have a basic grasp of what "cached" means and why
you are entering it, but that might not be the most intuitive method for
someone with no experience at all.  Jonathan's tutorials are good, but he
wisely assumes a reasonable degree of computer knowledge (how else would you
purchase and play the tutorial?).

Hi James,
 
I tend to follow Graham's way and search for the word Cached, and that tends
to work.
 
By the way, there is an excellent tutorial on Google from Jonathan Mosen on
http://www.mosenexplosion.com.  And if you think you know Google well, so
did I, but I still learned from it.
 
I don't sell this or anything, but I do highly recommend it.  His tutorial
Speaking Of Skype is equally excellent.  As ever, they are both very well
researched.  They are a bit JAWS oriented, but you can still get a lot from
them if you use another screen reader.
 
All the best

Try playing with the "next non-linked text" setting and personalise it to
Google.  You might be able to get it so that it generally skips the
sponsored Links, although I'm not sure how reliable that will turn out to
be.

Hi all.
 
I am a regular internet user and tend to use google for searching as many
do.  When training new users, the bigest problem is getting past the
sponsored links quickly and looking at the propper results.
 
I search for the word Cached and then know that probably I am on the first
result.  Anyone else got any suggestions?  I use JAWS version 7.
 
Cheers
 
Graham
