I'd say that Jaws should be used by anyone because it can be much faster than 
eyes in reading large documents, but many sighted people are uncomfortable 
listening to things instead of reading them.
I think the ideal mix would to be using Jaws with eyes because that way one can 
always be multipal-tasking while reading and one can be using two censes on the 
computer than just 1.
Hope this helps,

I wanted to post this here seeing as this mailing list gets lots of traffick.

My question is concerning the use of jaws and is the "screen" reader mainly 
used for completely blind individuals or partially sighted individuals?

I am not a teacher for the blind, so it is interesting to me when a person is 
told due to his or her "lack of vision" jaws will be reccomended. So, the 
question raised here is where would a persons vision need to be at in order to 
use jaws? If someone can read 20 point font or higher would jaws be necessary?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Take care.
