there are still apparently some bugs that need to be resolved with JAWS and
IE9 according to user reports. Apparently a forthcoming JAWS update
addresses these issues but as far as I know it hasn't been released yet. I
have been away so I am behind and am not following other screen readers at
this point.

Hi All,

As I read this link,It seems that the problem of canvas
accessibility(fallback content) has been solved:

The recently released Internet Explorer 9 beta implements the HTML5
specification’scanvas element fallback concept. This means that the content
inside a canvas elements start and end tags is exposed to assistive
technology users even when the browser supports canvas. It also means that
any interactive elements, inside a canvas elements start and end tags such
as links or form controls will be included in a documents default tab order
even when the browser supports canvas.

Also the problem of focusing on elements,

Now which problem exists and not solved?
