Re: JAWS & IE7

Hi John,

The general consensus from blind screen reader users is very positive.
This is specifically regarding IE 7 and JAWS 8 but also screen reader
compatibility with Firefox. I have no specific examples to qualify this
but suffice to say I have not heard of users abandoning new versions of
the screen reader and reverting back to an older version, or the same
with either browser. Many screen reader users I know would be IE users
with a , mostly power users, using Firefox.

If you have any specific issues you would like me to look at (are there
bugs filled etc?) I will gladly have a look and get back to you, on or
off list.
