JAWS for Windows®, from Freedom Scientific, is screen reader software designed to navigate through a website and read the web content aloud. (For more information about JAWS, visit the Freedom Scientific website.) Visually impaired users often rely on this technology to visit websites.
To use the JAWS screen reader with an Adobe® Flex® application most effectively, users must download and install scripts. These scripts enable some of the accessibility features of Flex and allow users to utilize the standard JAWS keyboard shortcut to enter Forms mode on a larger set of user interface controls than would otherwise be possible. It is important to direct users with visual impairments to this page so that they have the necessary scripts to use JAWS effectively.
Adobe recommends that all users of JAWS 8, 9 or 10 install the latest version of Flash Player.
