Product Description

CakeTalking customizes the JAWS for Windows screen reader so blind users can access the SONAR software that so many sighted people use to convert their PC’s into recording studios. And CakeTalking tops it all off with a set of detailed tutorials in the form of electronic documents of hundreds of pages that instruct the JAWS user on all the “how to’s”. Using CakeTalking with JAWS, blind musicians can focus their energy on creating, not trouble-shooting! Is your child, student or client creating music with a keyboard and computer for school, for fun, for profit? CakeTalking for SONAR will make it happen more easily, more quickly and just make it even more fun!

Since its introduction at a packed presentation during the CSUN conference in Los Angeles in the year 2000, CakeTalking has changed the lives of all kinds of blind musicians from students who can now independently record and mix their song demos and other audio productions, to working professionals who produce entire album projects for clients who pay them a competitive hourly rate for their production services.
