    It would have been 2003 that it all came together. Flash MX was first
released in March 2002 and Jaws 4.5 in September that year. I'm not sure

considerably since then!

Hi there. 

Can someone remind me which year and what version of JAWS and WindowEyes
gave access to Flash for the first time?
