Hi, Jaws does not read the chord charts correctly, but the way to input the proper chord is to arrow up, down and over. The trick is to space the chord out to position over the proper syllable for the chord change in the line below. It takes a bit of spacing and navigating to get it right, but was able to produce a simple chart in about 20 minutes. The more difficult ones could take as long as 45. I checked my work by first arrowing to the proper spots on the screen. Then to double-check, I would print out a copy and use the Optacon. I found that to be truly the only way to eliminate any errors, because even exact spacing isn't always accurate. Feel free to write me offlist if you have other questions.

I'm curious what a chord chart looks like to Jaws. Are they hard to understand with speach? Or, do you use braille? I play a bit of music but have not learned to read music so this is just a bit of interest for me. I play keyboards and a digital winnd controler but not guitar.

We still have Word on our desktop, but I don't miss it a bit. I have been able to write chord charts for musicians successfully using Jarte.

Now I can spellcheck after entering text editt boxes on web pages. I don't know if it is included in the free version of Jarte but the paid Plus version is only about $20. Hot Connect works well with Jaws. If you want a basic word processor with spell checker and can't afford MS Word, you might want to try Jarte.
