And here is a link to download Jaws for free
By free it means it allows you to use it for 40 minute at a time. To use it for another 40 minute, you will need to reboot your computer.
Hope this will help you complete your accessibility checking arsenal ;)
I downloaded the demo version of Jaws. I'm hoping that it will be a helpful tool and help the learning curve. During the installation, there was a warning (after the fact) that 'system changes' were being made prior to installation. I'd surely have appreciated some accountability to allow me to feel more comfortable about the changes. Can anyone shed some light on the system changes that JAWS makes?
This is my biggest gripe about adding any software - a leap of faith that nothing gets blown up in the process, and that the ethics of the designers are solid.
1 thing I did noticed when using JAWS was that the rendering of website or documents on the screen becomes a lot more rugged - aliasing of font disapears - I guess it's either to help Jaws in it's 'reading' of the page, or low vision users who like to read and hear at the same time.
