Technology Customization

Many applications, certainly Microsoft (tm) Office products and most assistive technology products work very well right "out of the box". But most of these products provide resources to customize many of the functions/features.

Jaws Customization

When used with most popular applications, JAWS® screen reading software provides you with screen information for the application you are using. The information that tells JAWS how to behave is contained within a set of “default files.” These default files, created by Freedom Scientific, are provided with JAWS. Unfortunately, not all applications are the same. Therefore, information telling JAWS how to behave in these applications is contained in a set of “application-specific files.” These files must be "customized" to provide the correct speech/Braille output.

The most powerful of the features--and most commonly used for proprietary workplace programs is Jaws scripting.
