Excellent advice. As a trainer, I would turn off the monitor and unplug the 
mouse for sighted users.

The jaws help system is an excellent place to find all things jaws.

  I do have one suggestion.  Show the instructor how to use JAWs help and then 
have them turn off their monitor.  I really learned JAWS when the monitor was 
useless to me.

  Our Seniors Program Manager, who is new to the Chicago Lighthouse and 
sighted,  wants to be able to learn enough about JAWS so she can teach at least 
the basics of how to use it to go on the internet, get e-mail, and use 
Microsoft Word.  What documentation would people recommend she study to learn 
JAWS, especially the keyboard commands?  I’ve shown her how to use insert-1 to 
toggle on and off keyboard help, and how to use insert-W in any program to get 
a list of keyboard shortcuts.  Any other ideas or documentation suggestions?
