Hi Allan and list,Yes, I've done this as well (I'll need to test JAWS 8.0 again). So far, I've found: * Windows Vista is somewhat accessible with JAWS. * JAWS does work with Windows Explorer that has been redesigned. * JAWS does work well with Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Center.
Notable changes under Vista include:* JAWS works with search box under Start Menu (if you type jaws in the stearch box and press ENARER, it will automatically launch JAWS). * Windows Explorer is no longer integrated with IE. * You cannot access My Documents with under My Computer. You'll need to go to Desktep and select your User name. Please note that JAWS 8.0.423 does not read everything under Vista (you'll need the upcoming update to do that). According to a beta tester that I know, it won't be long before this update will be released. If you have Vista and JAWS 8.0, try it out (use it at your own ristk!).
