jaws_start.jpgVisually impaired patrons will be happy to know that Greenwich Library now has the JAWS (Job Access With Speech) Screen Reader software available for their use.  Installed in a computer on the first floor by the Reference Desk (phone: (203) 622-7911), the JAWS Reader will enable persons with visual impairment to "read" what's on the computer screen.

  

Below is a video demonstrating the JAWS software:

  

JAWS provides the user access to what's written on the computer screen by using the "text-to-speech" audio option, as well as providing a Braille display via the Focus 40 Keyboard, which we also carry. Along with JAWS is the MAGic magnifier software, which can enlarge the size of what's on the screen. Anybody with a visual impairment or difficulty is welcome to use our JAWS Reader.

For more information, call (203) 622-7918 or email us here.  And be sure to check this blog and the library's ADA Page for further updates.
