If the info is on a computer and you have good training with JAWS, the job is not so complicated. 
I look up info of people who are receiving state benefits, (and some of them are blind) and they do not even know about me. 
Our disability creates obstacles but we can overcome such issues with assistive technology  and basic skills.

Perfect example of some jobs not being a good fit for a blind person. 

You can probably execute this job using the tools you specified, but if it takes you 5 times longer and costs 3 times the amount to do this job, is it really a good fit between you and this job? 

Hopefully the original paperwork will be in some sort of accessible digital format such as PDF, Word, HTML, Excel, rtf, etc.. You can then use the respective application's search feature to quickly find a keyword which contains the desired information. Ask in advance how the information has been compiled. For example, ask if they are using a proprietary database to query for such information. 

By the way, it's going to be very awkward to tell patients, callers, or individuals in front of you that you're not talking to them, you're talking to a sighted person someone across the globe whom is reading their paperwork to you. The ideal work environment is that they have no clue you're a blind individual.

Good Morning:

I have a job interview later this week, one of the requirements of the job is to sift through up to 70 pages of a nurses employee file. The purpose of this duty is to verify that the employee file is complete, and to check the expiration date of their TB and CPR certifications. I do not yet know if there is any handwriting on the materials but suspect that there is. I have in mind to use Seeing AI, KNFB Reader, and or Aira. Any recommendations ?  I am concerned that the Seeing AI and KNFB Reader App will be both too slow and somewhat inacqurate. I'm also concerned that using Aira will not be an option due to HIPA gidelines. Any feedback is welcome.

Jennifer
