JAWS® for Windows

 

JAWS (Job Access with Sound) is one of the leading screen readers on the market today. Henter-Joyce, a division of Freedom Scientific, created this application to help people with visual impairments use technology.

 

To download a demonstration version of JAWS, visit www.hj.com/JAWS/ JAWS37DemoOp.htm and select the JAWS 3.7 FREE Demo link. The demo expires after 40 minutes. The computer must be rebooted before another 40-minute session can be started.




The JAWS demo is fully functional and includes an extensive, highly customized help system. Users can select which voice to use and the rate at which text is spoken. Users also can create keyboard shortcuts. Although the demo is in English, the full version of JAWS 3.7 allows the user to choose one of several supported languages.

 

JAWS also includes special key commands for popular programs such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word. For example, when browsing in Internet Explorer, JAWS’ capabilities extend beyond reading the content on the screen. If JAWS is enabled, pressing Insert + F7 in Internet Explorer opens a Links List dialog, which displays all the links available on a Web page. For more information about JAWS and the other products offered by Henter-Joyce, visit www.hj.com.
