Hi Patty, Jennifer and list,
Well, here's the explanation of what "scripting" means: JAWS scripting means creating what's called scripts for an application so that JAWS can effectively work with it. It is like a little program on behalf of JAWS. It gathers information displayed on the program's screen and tells JAWS what to do. I think the response should not be treated as dismissal, but more towards unavailability of JAWS to work with the software in question.

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.
