I do not recall seeing anything about this program. I have a student who has CP, and is visually impaired. She only recently started using JAWS and has been training on it with her technology specialist – she already is proficient using Dragon for dictation for papers etc … I met with her today and she is having a horrible time using JAWS with her text books and after digging deeper she said she is using J-SAY – I haven’t discovered what the exact problem is because shes a HS student attending classes at the college level and habitually uses her technology specialist and commission for the blind tech specialist – anyway she said its been frustrating trying to use JAWS and that J-SAY is “glitchy” my question is does anyone have any experience using this combination and or any tips to make it less glitch? Here is the link in case its new:
