I'm not exactly sure what JAWS can do these days in the work place. I've been retired for 10 years. I spent 25 years doing transcription and now find it necessary to look for some kind of part time work . I'm sure others on the list might be able to give you a better idea. I'm just sort of playing things by ear and going one day at a time.

I hope you find success with jobs yourself. What, in your opinion, are some outside of the home things a jaws user can do? Have a blessed day, and don't worry, I'm praying and I am real careful about scams and such. If it's seeming too good to be true, I tend to leave it alone. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: Dan Kerstetter To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, November 18, 2009 10:02 AM Subject: Re: jobs and jaws and working at home All I can do is wish you the very best of luck in your search. I've been looking for work at home for over a year and have finally resigned myself to the fact that it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. Please, please be care\ful of scams. Again good luck.

I've worked at home for 11 years as a medical transcriptionist and had to quit due to pain in my hands and wrist and burnout with the career and being in one room constantly. It was suggested by the employment development coordinator that I work at home. Other than medical transcription and call center work, what are jobs jaws users can do efficiently at home? I've been using jaws since 1998 and am on version 10 now. I know some basic things but have never had the time to get really advanced with jaws and computer use. I am the type that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I use a braillenote with jaws. I may end up back in school but am giving work at home one last search and desperately need to hear from jaws users and what they do at home. I don't want privileged info, just about jaws and your job and how well they work together so I can get some ideas. I'm afraid call center work might be boring. Thanks and have a blessed day.
