That's a tall order, Laura.  Header is probably the easiest thing.

Go to the view menu, and arrow down to header and footer and press enter. this should put you in the header/footer pane, where you would enter your header information. If you press insert-f, Jaws should give you a lot of information about font and such, including the words 'header style'. Maybe. depending on your version of JAWS.

You format a header the way you would do text, centering, bolding and so on. If you down arrow a couple of times you will be in the footer pane, be aware.

When you are finished with the header go back to the view menu and choose normal so the pane goes away.

Once you are no longer in pane (sorry about that), you can read the header with insert-f1, or in print preview with the JAWS cursor.
