Freedom Scientific Announces JAWS® Training Bundle

(St. Petersburg, FL. - June 20, 2014)

Freedom Scientific released the JAWS Training Bundle today, a new training solution, specifically designed based on customer feedback.

This solution, provided in the DAISY audio format, contains over 50 hours of training on how to use JAWS with your computer, and ships with either a PlexTalk® or Victor Reader Stream, or is available to ship on an SD card only to use on your own device.

“We are looking to meet a specific need with this training,” said Matt Ater, Vice President, Services. “We feel that audio training is an excellent tool that can get JAWS users to a baseline. Everyone should know how to use Windows®, Microsoft® Office, and the Internet. The training is designed as a progression, starting at the very basics and continuing to more advanced topics.” Ater also added, “Individuals can control the pace of learning - lessons can be started and stopped easily, and repeated or skipped if necessary.”

Training includes essential lessons on Windows 7 and 8, Office 2010 and 2013, using the Internet, reading PDF's, and getting started with your computer.

“This is a great supplement to one-on-one training,” said Ryan Jones, a Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist and one of the JAWS certified instructors featured in the audio tutorials. “We also feel this is a great fit for customers who don't have access to a certified JAWS instructor because of where they live.”

Customers will also have the option to take tests on what they have learned and send reports to their agencies and instructors to measure individual progress.

The JAWS Training Bundle is available for purchase immediately. For more information, please visit or call Freedom Scientific at 1-800-444-4443. You can also listen to the latest FSCast Episode, which features Matt Ater discussing the benefits of this new training solution.
