Subject: Silverlight accessibility

FYI: I just tried the following Silverlight site with the latest versions
of three screen readers:

It seemed to work well with NVDA 2010.1, worked partially with Window-Eyes
7.2 public beta 1, and did not work at all with JAWS 11.0.756.

I thought one of the major feature enhancements of JAWS 11 is support for
UIA, the accessibility API that Silverlight uses instead of MSAA
(Silverlight controls are a subset of Windows Presentation Foundation, the
successor to Windows Forms in the .NET Framework).  Is some kind of manual
configuration needed to make the latest JAWS work with Silverlight?  I
tried both IE 7 and Firefox 3.6.
