Hi there,

I am trying to use a statistical software package called SAS with JAWS.

While the menus and most dialog boxes work ok with JAWS, I am unable to get 
JAWS to describe the data fields (basically a spreadsheet for statistical 
data).  As you navigate across columns, or up and down rows, there is no 
indication as to what column or row you are in.  Many times you cannot even 
determine the cell value.  I was wondering if anyone has any experience with 
SAS, and if there might be a JAWS script file out there which helps JAWS read 
the row, column, and cell values.  

I found that Freedom provides a script file for a competing statistical 
software tool SPSS.  So, I was hoping that if there are JAWS SPSS users out 
there, then maybe there are JAWS SAS users too.

Fingers Crossed,
