JAWS091812.pngWe've now updated the JAWS screen reader software and the MAGic magnifier software on our first floor computer that's designated for patrons with disabilities.  As explained on our ADA Page:

JAWS (Job Access With Speech) is a screen reader software for visually impaired readers. It 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. Along with JAWS is the MAGic magnifier software, which can enlarge the size of what's on the screen.

JAWS and MAGic are also compatible with our SARA (Scanning and Reading Appliance) scanner  as well.  (Read about SARA here.)

There's an instructional video on JAWS below. If you or someone you know has vision difficulties and you think this software can help, please contact me via this blog or at (203) 622-7918.
