Services integrates the settings of the Jaws Screen reader with the user interface of
the agency's applications. For example, if the employee's agency is using web
based user interfaces, the Jaws configuration may need to be told to read the title
attributes instead of the "alt" attributes. The JAWS software is the only screen
reader program certified for networks throughout the DOD and CAP's partner
agencies, such as the Navy's NMCI network. Providing technical services are
essential for employees to successful meet their necessary job tasks.

Description:

JAWS Technical Services:
JAWS Technical Services are required for 42 Federal employees to ensure successful implementation and integration of potentially complex software using their already provided JAWS software. The government has purchased the software for the 42 Federal Workers as a form of a mandatory reasonable accommodation per Equal Employment Opportunity laws. Jaws Technical Services allows for integration of the Jaws Screen reader with the user's interface of the agency's applications. For example, if the employee's agency is using web based user interfaces, the Jaws configuration may need to be told to read the title attributes instead of the "alt" attributes. The JAWS software is the only screen reader program certified for networks throughout the DOD and CAP's partner agencies, such as the Navy's NMCI network. Providing technical services are essential for employees to successful meet their necessary job tasks. The government is therefore restricting this competition to only those providers with training expertise in JAWS. Certified Trainers of JAWS is preferred.
