There's a new plugin for JAWS to work with Firefox (I think). Full story here: http://www.wats.ca/articles/firefoxandjaws/71
I'm actively addressing this problem, but it requires some assistance from screen reader vendors. We need more than questsions answered -- we need them to make changes. Can you also contact Freedom Scientific, the makers of JAWS, and indicate that you want to use Firefox?
JAWS 7 and Window-Eyes 5.5 will support Gecko 1.8 and Firefox 1.5.
3rd party application got updated, not Mozilla code itself. (Should probably have been Tech Evangelism.) -> WORKSFORME
I just spent since late 2004 putting the MSAA and keyboard support into Mozilla so visually impaired users could use it. So, this should be marked FIXED.
> I just spent since late 2004 putting the MSAA support into Mozilla Fair enough, my mistake. (Although no mention of that was made in the comments of this bug or its resolution. :) If you could reference the bug responsible for checking in that code that would be great.
Sorry again, I do see your comment 3 in this bug now.
All the bugs under Core -> Disability Access APIs for starters.
