A search in the nFS Help Center for JAWS brings up 18 help documents, but most relate to nFS.

Screen readers compatible with the new FamilySearch and PAF (110771)

This document does not explain how to use these products with PAF, so I did some more searching. This time I went to > Help > Product Support and searched for: PAF JAWS

This time I found 6 documents includingthe one above:

Opening and Restoring PAF Files Using JAWS (110606)

Viewing and editing record notes in PAF using JAWS (110930)

Is JAWS compatible with PAF and PAF Family Insight? (109225)

Using the JAWS screen reader with PAF for blind persons (109634)

A blind patron would like to know which third party affiliate programs are compatible with the JAWS screen reader. (109361)

Screen readers compatible with the new FamilySearch and PAF (110771)

To access these documents follow the procedure above and click the links to the specific documents.

I invite anyone with experience using PAF and a screen reader to reply to this posting. (Sometimes a spoonful of experience is worth a box-car load of theory.)
