Hey all,
     I am currently trying to find employment, and am running up
against a few roadblocks concerning accessibility with Jaws.  In order
to be as prepared for discussing accomodations with perspective
employers as possible, I am trying to do a ton of research between now
and my next interview.
     I am wondering, is there a list, online or otherwise, which
covers work-related applications which may be accessible with Jaws, or
have been made to be accessible through scripting?  I know of
Jfwlite.com, which has a few downloadable scripts.  But, if there's a
comprehensive list of programs somewhere which have proven successful
to Jaws-using employees, I would greatly like to know where to find
it.  There are many programs I may come across in the workplace,
Quickbooks, SPSS, ETC, which I am not familiar with.  But, knowing
Jaws can interface with a specific program ahead of time would be
excelent information to have right at the first interview.  Due to the
economy the way it is, the workforce has become extremely competitive,
and waiting for an assistive technology rep from the Commission for
the Blind to acquire the information, which can take quite a bit of
time, may prove fatal to a perspective job.

     Apologies if this is a little wordy.  Thank you all for your time.
