Re: Target Jaws version?

Basically, no, it isn´t possible (and users are very much against it,
though sometimes we as developers or accessibility testers sure wish
we could do that).
You might be able to implement a hack to see what software is running
on the users computer .. or ask a hacker for copy of some malware that
would let you, but I wouldn't recommend it. ;)
