Hello Joseph,

On the other hand, we also know that a lot of software works without special 
scripting, or some advanced JAWS users may be able to perform their own 
scripting or just use the application as it stands.  I believe the 
employer's response below is, at a minimum, presumptive and probably 
outright discriminatory if pursued to its ultimate conclusion.

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.
Cheers,
Joseph

>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.

I haven't even finished the admissions

not have any applications scripted for Jaws.
If one becomes available I will be glad to
let you know.
