Training Downloads

The Training Downloads page is your one-stop source for finding many of the free training materials we have available. Find that DAISY training book or MP3 file you are looking for. Find training for multiple products in one place, instead of having to search through several different product pages. Please take advantage of all of the training information and materials we have posted here. We hope you will come back often to see what is new.

JAWS Tip: This page and several other pages on the Freedom Scientific Web site are divided into regions for ease of navigation. Beginning with JAWS 15, users can press R or SHIFT+R to move from the beginning of one region to another. In addition, you may explore the structure of regions on a page and navigate by using the list of regions with INSERT+CTRL+R. Once you move to the region desired, try pressing H to move by heading within each region to find the different topics within that region. Press SHIFT+H to move backward by heading. For JAWS versions 14 and earlier, use the keystrokes SEMICOLON, SHIFT+SEMICOLON, or INSERT+CTRL+SEMICOLON.

JAWS Training Downloads

NOTE: The Basic Training for JAWS beginning with JAWS version 13 and later is generic, and is not specific to any particular version of JAWS. The lessons teach concepts and as time goes on, both JAWS and Windows will change. Also, your computer, as well as your version of JAWS, may be configured differently than the ones used in the Basic Training. Therefore what you hear on your computer could vary slightly from what you hear in the Basic Training. For example, newer modules may use Windows 8, and some of you may still be using Windows 7 or prior versions. You should be able to follow along just fine even if there are some slight differences.
