Many people are now turning to the JAWS for Windows screen-reader from VFO, particularly now that Window-Eyes is no longer a viable option. JAWS has been an extremely popular screen-reader for many years and continues to be the choice for many individuals and organisations. The new ZoomText Fusion product, which combines a range of low vision features with JAWS, is another incentive to use it.
But once you’ve got it, how do you use it? While it is true that VFO themselves offer training courses and Webinars, there is still a great need for high quality training at a low cost.
In this week’s Tech Talk, Brian Hartgen from Hartgen Consultancy will describe the training courses available as part of the company’s product range. From learning how to use JAWS for the first time through to working with more sophisticated programs including audio-based applications, the catalogue of training courses is growing. Join Brian to find out what is on offer and perhaps to suggest topics in which you would like training!
Brian Hartgen has been a Trainer in adaptive technology for 23 years. He is well-known to the Tek Talk audience and has produced a range of products to assist blind people to use screen-reading technology.
