In my post I omitted to insert the site name that immediately brought this to 
my mind. It is http://vimeo.com/12542380. This is not the first time I have 
observed this.

  I am finding that there are webpages which are not handled by JAWS but seem 
to be handled properly by free screenreaders such as that from www.satogo.com. 
If you visit this site, you will find that with JAWS it seems to be impossible 
to play the video. Using Internet explorer 8, the Flash movie doesn't seem to 
be found and using Firefox, the movie is found but the buttons are not. It 
seems to me singularly unfortunate that a screenreader for which I do not have 
to pay can access this kind of webpage while one for which I pay a not 
inconsiderable sum has to give way before its free brethren.
