you will also find this to be true or at least it was last time I checked 
The reason is that jaws is using the lang attribute to guide the rendering 
of the spoken language.  If the page language is set to any of the uk forms, 
it will be rendered in british english.

Subject: [guispeak] British accents with JAWS and IE6

I get a British accent.  When I go to other pages on the site, the accent
returns to American English.
