Re: Creating a Website Using JAWS

I remember studying an HTML primer which I acquired from Bookshare. It may have been HTML for Dummies. It seemed to be comprehensive and yet explained things extremely well, even mentioning the importance of accessibility for products such as screen readers.

Debbie, creating a website has nothing to do with Jaws.  Jaws is just a
screen reader.

What you need is an HTML editor.  The easiest one available to you is
Notepad which is already in Windows.  Using this program, you will have to
code all aspects of your website by hand.  There are HTML editors that can
make the process less tasking:  A common one is Notepad++.

Website development is an art unto itself.  If you don't already know HTML,
time to put on the learning hat.  You should be able to find tutorials all
over the place on the web.  For the moment, I will recommend that you begin
your journey by taking a good look at:;data=02%7C01%7C%7Cd1084d1634ff45a2551c08d6a2e9a2c4%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636875521666980474&amp;sdata=OyW0sho8DPE0ph8VHAadb7LYcwL6bQtPItY7mjME1d8%3D&amp;reserved=0 

Before you begin, carefully sketch out the type of website you wish to
create.  This is because after you are done with your art, you will need to
find a home for the various web pages you've created if you wish for the
world to see and read it.  

I hope the foregoing is basic enough; others will most certainly chip in and
make the conversation far more entertaining than I have done.  Good luck and
all the very best!
