Training Course. Catching up with JAWS.


Now is your chance to get some high quality training on some of the latest features within the screen-reader JAWS for Windows which have been introduced over the past few years. Ideal for JAWS users, Trainers, Consultants and anyone interested in the screen-reader!

If you are a person who chooses to upgrade your copy of JAWS on a regular basis, or maybe you've skipped an upgrade or two and you've only just purchased JAWS for Windows version 17, chances are that you may not have had time to get to grips with the latest features the screen-reader offers. While JAWS does contain excellent documentation, there's nothing like someone sitting down with you to explain how many of these new features work. This proved to be the case during the training classes relating to this course, since people had questions which meant including more topics.

That's why at Hartgen Consultancy, we've created a short course to enable you to get your JAWS knowledge up-to-date. The course focuses upon the new features included with JAWS versions 16, 17 and 18 which you may have missed out on.

Purchasing JAWS is a significant investment, so it is important that you make the most of what you've paid for and that you are taught by someone who fully understands all aspects of using it. You may also be an access technology Trainer, or an I T Lecturer in a College who has a basic awareness of how JAWS works but again is not up to speed with the latest enhancements.

What You Will Learn.

This course is in four one-hour sessions. It is designed for anyone who already understands how to use many functions of JAWS but who would like to gain a greater skill level with the latest features. The features are demonstrated with real world examples so that they make sense.

Topics include:

  • New enhancements to the JAWS Startup Wizard.
  • The benefits of Smart Navigation on the Internet.
  • What is the Text Analyser and how do you use it?
  • Enabling and Disabling Smart Navigation permanently and temporarily.
  • The advantages of Semi-Auto Forms Mode.
  • Using Flexible Web to good effect.
  • JAWS Command Search.
  • Working with Placemarkers.
  • Enhancements within Windows10 and Microsoft Office 2016.
  • Working with Facebook on the internet.
  • Scanning PDF files which would otherwise be in accessible.
  • Using the Settings Centre to configure settings for a specific website.
  • Using the Settings Centre in general.
  • Layered keystrokes.
  • Backing up and restoring settings using the new Import/Export wizard of JAWS 18 or more traditional methods in earlier versions.
  • Audio Ducking in JAWS 18.
  • Other Tips and Tricks.

If I Purchase the Course, What Will I Receive?

The course will give to you:

  • An audio recording of each of the 4 lessons;
  • Sample web pages and documents to illustrate various topics;
  • Text documentation to reinforce topics covered in the lessons.
