Bryan,

No, it does not require vision. My blind students do this with me. I just give them verbal directions and they follow them. Once you learn the keyboard, you can operate many aspects of the computer with no voice. My blind students can sit at any computer and open Word, write material, print it off or send an email all based on keystrokes and just knowing the keyboard. I do this myself all the time, hitting keystrokes to do what I want without any vision on the task.

>>When one of my students is having difficulties  with their Jaws or needs help installing it, I need to connect to their  computer a different way than through Jaws TANDEM.  There are many ways to do remote access, but I chose to connect yesterday  through SKYPE. For  those new to the idea, remote access is where someone can help you resolve  computer problems, no matter where you or they are in the world. You just need  a phone line, but better is a wireless connection...anything works  though.
>>
>>The student called and then I gave her directions on the key commands so  I could call up her computer.
>>
>>Within minutes her Jaws was fixed. I then 
  gave her the JAWS commands to pull up her computer using JAWS TANDEM and  continued her lesson.
>>
>>When you connect remotely using anything else 
  other than JAWS  TANDEM, you will not be able to hear JAWS unless the person turns him way  up, which I have done also depending on the issue, but you miss too much  information. To truly check to make sure JAWS is working correctly you must  pull the students' computer up using TANDEM. I had her and SKYPE on one of my monitors, still connected remotely and then pulled her computer up using  TANDEM on the other monitor. I could easily watch the interaction on both  screens, tweaking as I needed. Well actually having her tweak. In general, I  will not touch my keyboard to control their machine, as this is a great chance  for the student to learn how to fix their own problems. 
>>
>>The point is 
  giving them applicable skills that will work for a lifetime, so when they are 
  on their own, they can fix their own issues as they come up. My older students 
  who have long since graduated, can just email me now with a problem and I can 
  give them the answer back through email. Rarely do I have to pull their 
  machines up.
>>
>>Give someone a fish and they eat for a day.
>>Teach them 
  how to fish and they eat for a lifetime!
