hi Yardbird,

You don't need to install it, it's come together with windows XP pro. and
home edition.  Just goto start/program, arrow-up or down until
windows-messenger.

Okay, that makes two votes for Windows Messenger.  It there some trick to

If you use Windows XP, I'd recommend windows Messenger, since it's already
built in to XP and the scripts for it and JAWS are right there with JAWS.
