I got this from another list and thought you’d find this useful.
New Training Course. Over Easy: The Switch from window-Eyes to JAWS!




It's no secret that sales of the Window-Eyes screen-reader have ended. The owning company VFO are offering JAWS for Windows as a replacement for Window-Eyes users. But how do you get started with JAWS? How easy is it to transition from one screen-reader to another? How do you accomplish some of the most basic tasks you would want to do with your screen-reader?

All these questions and more will be answered in our training course, Over Easy: The Switch from window-Eyes to JAWS. 

During the session, lasting approximately 90 minutes, Brian Hartgen will show you the basics of how to use JAWS for windows and give you plenty of useful tips and tricks along the way. Best of all, you'll be able to keep a recording of the Webinar and get a text document containing keystrokes and a summary of essential points for later reference. The Webinar will also give you plenty of opportunity to ask questions.


Brian Hartgen has been using JAWS for over 20 years. He is also a beta tester for JAWS, MAGic and ZoomText Fusion, has completed the advanced JAWS scripting course at VFO's Headquarters in florida and has completed JAWS certification in 2017. So not only is his knowledge of JAWS as current as it can be, but he came to the JAWS screen-reader from a Window-Eyes background.


The course will be delivered online via our accessible Talking Communities server. If you have not used this conferencing software before, you will receive instructions prior to the commencement of the course. This software allows for the delivery of the presentation, including the output from the screen-reading software in high quality audio.

For some people, it can be hard to move from one screen-reader to another, particularly if you've been using Window-Eyes for very many years. But here is a chance to get your skills to a point where you can work with JAWS effectively, and use that knowledge to learn more as you go. Join us to find out what JAWS can do for you!
