Re: JAWS open web standards issue tracker

One of the primary reasons I have advised against using Jaws as an
accessibility testing platform is the lack of a public issue tracker
(NVDA rules the day there, and has for years).
Obivousy cost is another factor but let's not get into that discussion.
Suffices to say that the ability to file bugs how Jaws works with web
pages has removed a major barrier for both users and developers
(needless to say, I have no affiliation with either Jaws or TPG, other
than being a user of the former and knowing quite a few cool people
from the latter).
