Hello Patricia,

I would check out the following web site for information on Work At Home 
Businesses and a list of companies that have been already checked out.

He is a consumer advocate and has a National radio program that addresses 
consumer issues.  

Also in order to become a agent for some of these types of companies you are 
required to be registered as an LLc and have a specific kind of computer.  
Additionally, you will have to go through a screening process which will be a 
cost that you will have to pay.  This cost should be no more than $35.00. There 
is a lengthy application and testing  process that you will be required to 
complete in order to qualify.  

As to whether or not JAWS will work with their software I cannot say for sure 
and you will have to find this out.

  I've actually been in contact with an employee of Arise.  She is sighted  
though.  She knows nothing about JAWS or scripts.  She has been the one 
encouraging me to apply.
  So, based on what I've been told and what I've seen, this company is not a 
  Believe me, if I weren't in contact with this person, I would never have 
applied for this job.

    I think this company  is based in Florida or so the address on their web 
page indicates such.  Furthermore one has to be careful about these work from 
home jobs.  Many have turned out to be scams or do not deliver what they

      Hi Patty,

      While I don't have an answer to your question, I wanted to just say that 
I find this very strange. Not too long ago, there was an article I read in the 
newspaper about this company. They are based in Arizona, and the article said 
that they cater to disabled workers. The man in the article was blind, and he 
worked for this company. I don't understand why you received that response.

        Hi Everyone.

        I don't think this is the right venue for my question/request but I'm 
going to post the question anyway in the hopes that someone can point me in the 
right direction.

        I have been looking for a job and came across this company called Arise 
(, a home-based customer service type company. I haven't even 
finished the admissions process and they have already dismissed me.   The 
response I got was as follows:

        Thank you for your email. Right now we do not have any applications 
scripted for Jaws. If one becomes available I will be glad to let you know.  

        Best Regards,
        Regine Janvier

        Admissions Specialist 

        Can anyone tell me what scripting is and how complicated it might be to 
get a company like Arise to do this?
         If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.


        Patty Davis
