The Hadley School offers free internet training as well as word processing, and 
typing courses which can be used given the individual has a screen reader, 
which is dependent on whether the computer has enough memory to allow the 
screen reader / magnifier to run successfully.  Some people have had success 
using NVDA, as a free screen reading solution, and some create a free SA to GO 
account.  However, the knowledge and skills necessary for loading and using the 
screen reading / magnification software must exist before the Hadley course can 
be taken.
