Hi all,
I've figured out a way of getting JAWS to announce the correct version
of IE.
1. Open script manager, and close the currently opened script file, if
2. On the file menu, press enter on open shared file.
3. Tab to the files of type combo box, scroll to "header file"
4. In the list of files, select "jfw.jsh" and press enter to load the
5. Find the line that says "Find_IE" (without the quotes), arrow to and
select "\\browseui.dll" and replace it with "\\ieframe.dll"
6. Save and close the header file.
7. On the file menu, press enter on open shared file.
8. Shift tab to the files list, select "jaws window.jss" and press
9. Press control+s to recompile the scripts. You should hear "compile
complete". If so, close Script manager, otherwise correct any errors
10. Now press insert+j to open the JAWS window (or JAWS context menu,
depending on how JAWS is set).
11. Press control+insert+v. JAWS should now announce the correct version
of IE. Note however that this will only work if you have IE7 installed
on your machine.
Hope you find this of some use.
