  • Announcing our first free online training session in JAWS 2019

    We’re very excited here at Sight and Sound as we eagerly await the release of JAWS 2019, the latest version of the world’s most popular screen reader, from Freedom Scientific, part of the Vispero group.

    To ensure that our customers can get the most from this exciting new release and find out what it contains, we are delighted to announce our first online training session, which will take you through the features and new options available in the newly released version.

    Over a 90 minute session, Sight and Sound’s Stuart Lawler will talk about some of the key additions in 2019 including improved support in Microsoft Office, enhanced support in Skype version 8, Audio ducking, phonetic speaking of characters during navigation and much more.

    Whether you already qualify for an upgrade to this new version, or you just want to find out what’s new, this session is for you. If you are a user, or someone who supports users then again, this session is definitely for you!

    Please note, we will assume a good knowledge of JAWS at the commencement of this session, so this should not be viewed as an introductory training module for the JAWS screen reader!
