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.

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.
