CakeTalking for SONAR is a voice output music composition program designed to make SONAR, a software program used for recording music and printing scores, accessible to persons who are blind or have low vision. CakeTalking customizes the JAWS for Windows screen reader (see separate entry) so blind users can access the SONAR software.

The key commands provided by the JAWS scripts are intuitive and designed to be easy to learn. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM and compatible computers.
