There used to be an association for blind  lawyers.
Not sure if it  still exists.

Hi,
I remember about two gentilmans what I've trained few months ago from
Lexis
Nexis, a company specialized in support for lawyers and rlated.
They have a special department there for visually impaired lawyers.
I have trained this people exactly for Jaws.

I will drop an e-mail to Hannah to see in which way they can be in
contact
one to each other.

Please could someone with such experience perhaps help this lady by
writing
to her directly?  She has given her permission for me to circulate the
text
of her message.  Her Email address is at the foot of the message.

Many thanks.

Message begins:

Dear BCAB
 
I am writing for general advice, I work for a visually impaired
lawyer. She
currently uses 'Jaws Screen Reader' software on her computer, but we
have
noticed this programme isn't very helpful when reading legal
blacklines. 
 
I wondered if you would have any advice on this particular matter or
know of
any issues like this that have occurred in the past. We are looking
for some
guidance in which you could recommend for this sort of issue, whether
a
different type of software would work or if there is a programme that
works
specifically for lawyers and in particular blacklines or similar. 
 
I look forward to hearing from you. 
 
Kind regards 
 
Hannah
