Hi Paul,
Here is a positing below which I have just made to the
JAWS-UK list.  I cannot speak for any other screen readers.
Now that I.E.7 being released, a word to the wise.

I have it on the very best of authority that this will ONLY
work properly with JAWS 7.1

If you have JAWS 7.0, Forms Mode will certainly not work
properly, and there may be other unexpected problems.

It is definitely NOT recommended that you use IE7 with any
previous version of JAWS.

Please don't say you have not been warned.

Subject: [guispeak] IE 7 & Screen Readers?

Hi all.
I was wondering if anyone of the screen reader packages
support IE 7 yet.  I would be VERY interested to know
because I have heard that it will be an automatic update and
I would like to have at least a little headsup before that
I have my system set to inform me and give me the option of
downloading and installing or not but I am hearing that this
automatic update of IE 7 may NOT give me the option.
Thanks again for ANY info you all could give me.
