JAWS (Job Access With Speech) provides speech technology that works with your current Windows
operating system to provide access to today's popular software applications and the Internet. JAWS uses
an integrated voice synthesizer and your computer's sound card to output the content of your computer
screen to either your speakers or to a pair of headphones. JAWS also outputs to refreshable Braille displays.
This technology provides access to a wide variety of information, education, and job related applications.
JAWS is easily customized for the user's individual preferences and needs. Adjustments can be made to
JAWS-supplied voices through setting the person, pitch, rate, and typing echo for the program. Verbosity settings
can be made to specify how much screen information is actually heard by the user. Specifications can be
made to the dictionary utility, defining exactly how certain words are spoken.
JAWS supports popular Windows applications such as e-mail programs, word processors, spreadsheets, web browsers, project management and research tools,
presentation software, web development tools, software development tools, database management software, sound editing software, and much more.
JAWS for Windows supports all standard Windows applications, however
they have developed enhanced functionality for the most popular
Windows applications in use today.
They are constantly expanding JAWS for Windows application-specific support.
