RE: JAWS and FlashPaper

FlashPaper will read in JAWS - can you send me the document separately
or post a link - attachments don't seem to work on this list.

For FlashPaper info, take a look at:
http://www.macromedia.com/macromedia/accessibility/features/flashpaper/

We also offer JAWS scripts for Flashpaper to improve the reading
experience. JAWS can read FlashPaper without them, but they enhance the
reading experience, for example by adding ctrl+page up/down as keyboard
shortcuts to skip ahead or back a page.

Hope this helps,
AWK
