i would think it would take a very wise person to learn jaws when they still had some site. it is so much harder to do it when your are totally blind. . karen ----- Original Message ----- From: Kimsan Song To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, March 16, 2011 7:36 PM Subject: RE: jfw for the blind or visually impaired Cy, 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.
