There are a group of visual disability that affect peripheral vision.  That
would mean you could get less of a word in your field of vision.   It could
have to do with eye strain as well.  If you can see 20 point font but only
read one letter at a time JAWS could be a very useful tool.

That was my Original thought.

I kind of figured that there were no criteria, which brought me to
presenting this discussion or lack of...

Where I work, I am part of a multidisciplinary team supporting blind and
visually impaired school students and I have observed the teachers for the
blind assess these students and reccomend jaws training.

My confusion was why when these students are able to read 20 plus pt font
just fine, why introduce them to jaws? and when they use computers else
where its the same exact set up font wise etc. Meaning, the only time they
use jaws is when they are in class with me...

Anyways, thanks for your response.

Take care.
