JAWS Workshop by Talking Book Library

The Worcester Talking Book Library is conducting a free workshop on Jaws, a screen reading program for users with visual impairment. The session will be held on Saturday, December 14 from 10 AM – 12 PM in the computer lab at the Worcester Public Library.

This workshop will cover basic and intermediate text editing; spelling and grammar check; document formatting quick keys; techniques for quickly skimming long documents; setting typing echo; and using JAWS “Research It” as a dictionary.

Participants should have basic typing skills (a minimum of approximately 25 words per minute) and some prior exposure to JAWS or another screen-reading program.

Participants are encouraged to bring a set of headphones to the workshop. If needed, these may be purchased at the Worcester Public Library for $2.00.
