Hi, Audacity works very well with JAWS and is free.

Subject: [musictlk] Audacity question

Hello, everyone:

By way of update, someone snagged the section leader position I 
was considering taking, in my community chorus—a little 
disappointed, but generally okay, since the one thing I was 
unable to do, given the need to access particular minute sections 
in the notation and not choosing to learn Braille music, was 
asking notation-oriented questions about trouble spots in 
whatever we’re learning.  However, the prospect did give me a 
chance to seriously think through other challenges I’d have 
faced and prioritize methods by which I could meet them, so 
thanks for everyone’s input.

Second: We are working on the lovely Dvorak “Requiem,” and 
have the Berkshire “virtual choir” CD, but there are several 
spots I’d like to get rid of—not looking to totally shelve 
the existing CD because, once I’m more comfortable with the 
material, having the original extra stuff will give me more of a 
sense of how our sections fit into the work as a whole.  However, 
I’d love to have a second CD, a sort of “learning CD” that 
omits whatever doesn’t concern my voice part, and that leads to 
a question.  I know someone who uses Audacity and is sighted.  
Does anyone know whether it is Jaws-compatible? If so, what could 
I expect to have to pay for it? It may not be an expense I can 
immediately afford, but for situations like this, worth an 
investment later.  Thanks!
