Rick,

As I lost my sight two years I was given one on one tuition for three months by our local branch O National Council for the Blind. After each lesson I got my tutor to record instructions. That way I had something to fall back on.

Hope this helps.

Pauline

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.

Thanks.
Rik
