Jaws does not read the chord charts correctly, but the way to input the proper 
chord is to arrow up, down and over.  The trick is to space the chord out to 
position over the proper syllable for the chord change in the line below.  It 
takes a bit of spacing and navigating to get it right, but was able to produce 
a simple chart in about 20 minutes.  The more difficult ones could take as long 
as 45.  I checked my work by first arrowing to the proper spots on the screen.  
Then to double-check, I would print out a copy and use the Optacon.  I found 
that to be truly the only way to eliminate any errors, because even exact 
spacing isn't always accurate.

Feel free to write me offlist if you have other questions.

  Hi Judy.  I'm curious what a chord chart looks like to Jaws.  Are they hard 
to understand with speach?  Or, do you use braille?

  I play a bit of music but have not learned to read music so this is just a 
bit of interest for me.  I play keyboards and a digital winnd controler but not

    My husband and I love Jarte and have been using it for two years.  We still 
have Word on our desktop, but I don't miss it a bit.

    I have been able to write chord charts for musicians successfully using

      I just discovered a great feature in Jarte Plus, the low cost screen 
friendly word processor.  Now I can spellcheck after entering text editt boxes 
on web pages.  I don't know if it is included in the free version of Jarte but 
the paid Plus version is only about $20.  Hot Connect works well with Jaws.  If 
you want a basic word processor with spell checker and can't afford MS Word, 
you might want to try Jarte.


      Hot ConnectText from:       
  Hot Connect connects Jarte to any other program's text window allowing 
instant transfer of text between the two windows. The connection makes it easy 
and convenient to use Jarte to write and spell check text for the other 
program. Hot Connect can be used for writing and spell checking e-mails, blog 
entries, newsgroup posts, or any other writing task you normally do in another 
program or in your web browser.Hot Connect can also be used for reading 
articles from your web browser without any of the ads.
