I just wonder.
This may be a question with not any one answer.

But I would ask for input...  If you were going to recommend to someone who 
is in their 50's or so and lost vision, never used a pc, and now wants to 
learn and to learn using JAWS, what is the best and most practical way to go 
about it?

Instructional programs, training centers, guides to self-teach.
I'd be interested to hear suggestions.   Maybe there is one place to go on 
the web for a good resource?

I'd like to know, both for the purpose of referring someone, and to just see 
what is out there that I don't know about myself.  It seems that my own 
self-taught has lots of gaps that keep making me have to re-learn the basics 
from time to time.
