Re: Using Jaws to orient a new user to the rest of the keyboard!

Hi.
how about using one of the tytalking typing programs, such as
the one from aph or the one that I like,
talking typing teacher from marvelsoft.
jaws isn't needed with either one of these programs.
and of course, there is always insert + number row 1 for keyboard help.
but this isn't a tutorial, the user would have to use trial and error to
learn the keyboard.
