I tested some of the script using Jaws 14, and Windows 7 64bit. I came across a
couple of issues:
1. The commands to to to a track by number or move the current track to a track
by number didn't do anything. (JAWSKey+a, g, and JAWSKey+a, m).
2. In the toolbars, pressing ctrl+tab causes Jaws to read grabber. I'm pretty
sure there's a keyboard focus issue with the grabber which is at the start of
each toolbar, and that it can be fixed for the next version of Audacity.

currently-running version of JAWS. Therefore, after installing you
will need to run JAWS with each of the other languages and compile
the scripts "manually". This is a kind of silly implementation but
it's the best I've come up with so far given the way the script
ompiler works. I am open to any suggestions!
The script has a new home. The script is now hosted on GitHub. You
can download the 2.1.0-beta3 installer here.
The installer exe for the current "official release" is also there (although
not the same binary file, it should have been built from the same source and
should be functionally equivalent).
You can view the latest README. (This may be newer than the one in the beta 3
Let me know how it works for you.
