Hi Marlon,I would say that version six of JAWS is probably the minimum version for use with Visual Studio 2005. Visual Studio 2005 was tested against JAWS versions between five and seven as these were the versions that were current or released during the development of Visual Studio 2005.
The versions of JAWS that were tested against Visual Studio 2005 all work pretty much the same when used with the scripts; however, there is one problem with version five of JAWS that cannot be fixed by the scripts. The problem is that the off screen model seems to get stuck in an infinite loop, or performs some other task that seems never ending, when the Solution Explorer becomes visible under some circumstances. The curcumstance that I know that causes this is when the Solution Explorer first becomes visible after creating an MFC project or upgrading a VC project from an earlier version of Visual C++. This problem doesn't seem to be present in versions of JAWS later than five.
I can't comment on versions of JAWS above seven from my personal experience. I don't use JAWS that much these days, and I haven't been inclined to keep my copy of JAWS up to date. So, I don't own a copy of version eight. If the comments that Dennis made about greater use of MSAA are true, and I believe them to be given Dennis's former position with Freedom Scientific, then version eight may be slightly better.

If the scripts can be compiled and used in jaws 6 I see no reazons why jaws 8 would run better, cinse the scripts will take control of things. This is not to contradict you, I am curious.

Marvin, you might want to take this chance to get your jaws upgraded, I do believe that jaws 8 works better with the vs IDE's than does jaws 6, and you will need the scripts for VS 2005-2008 that are available from my grab bag site (see URL under my name) and can benefit from other materials there for the VS IDE's there as well. good luck, inthane.
