For what it's worth on this topic, I have always had jaws in my working environments. I have worked in the radio industry, and have put jaws to the test on many occasions. Fortunately, for me it has worked well enough that I could get my jobs done. I realize the same is not tru for all blind folks. However, I would say that for the most part, if you know the system you're using, jaws can help you along, but it's not the only solution. Simply put, you have to have a working knowledge of the software you're trying to use. Having a working knowledge of JFW goes without saying. Plus, have patients to deal with whatever problems you might run into regarding jaws reading the screen correctly. The later versions seem to do much better at presenting the whole screen, than earlier versions do. I currently work as a telemarketer, and use Microsoft Excel, Outlook and Word on a daily basis.
