Screen Reader market penetration?

We are considering creating a site using Flash MX for a client, but I am
concerned about the accessibility issues. Currently, Window-Eyes is the
only screen reader that supports the Microsoft Active Accessibility built
into Flash MX, although I understand that there is a version of JAWS
currently in testing. Does anyone know of a good resource to find out what
the market penetration is of the different screen readers (primarily
Window-Eyes, JAWS, and IBM Home Reader)?
