Just to sayy thanks for a very comprehensive report by you of your training 
with the NCBI and Fas.
Interesting about online too!

  Hello Tony,

  Since my last e-mail regarding the ECDL course that I undertook in FAS, 
Limerick, I forgot to mention how I pursued this. Anyway, I did my training 
with Jaws through NCBI, Limerick, then it was suggested would I like to try a 
ECDL course with FAS, although nobody did it at that stage.  Therefore, met the 
supervisors in Multi Media and from there we worked together to set up a 
accesible way of working with Jaws.  Then realising there was difficulties at 
the beginning because I was the only one that did  know about Jaws in FAS, the 
way it worked for me was that I got test papers, firstly started with word 
andthe test paper each time were very similiar and from there the supervisors 
and I  worked together, for example anything I was not  sure of regarding word, 
excel etc i worked out about 95%  , although knowing about the computer before 
my vision impairment meant alot 

  I have been listening to  the  e-mails, from the list and I believe their 
suggestions would give you a opportunity to pursue the  ECDL, and working with 
this list has given more understanding of Jaws.  I would hope that FAS would 
enforce this mmore, and I am in contact with FAS in Limerick and hopefully this 
will be a continual opportunity for blind people to access.

  Kind regards,

  Eleanor McLoughlin
