Suzanne, I assume you will be using a Windows computer running JAWS or
some other screen reader.  If you are familiar with, and comfortable
with the Focus products I would stick with that.  Commands may be
different from braille display to display.  If you will be using a Mac
then that is not the case.  The last thing you need in a new position
is to be trying to learn new commands.  I am thrilled you will be
starting work soon.
