RE: cpu usage lost jaws

JAWS has always worked in the task manager in Windows XP.  That is, it has
certainly worked since version 4.50.  In Windows XP professional, JAWS used
not to read the dialogue which popped up when you pressed control alt
delete, but you could definitely have pressed an alt t to bring up the task
manager, which read fine.  Happily, it seems even that this minor
inconvenience has been completely and utterly fixed with the new JAWS
5.00.812 release.

I didn't think JAWS worked while in task manager. Unless that was fixed in 
Windows XP?
