Hi all.
The virtual ribbon menus is very exciting indeed! It even works with applications like WinZip, where that has nothing to do with office!

JAWS 12 appears to have several interesting features.  Some might even be 
called exciting.
Configuration Manager appears to be replaced with Settings Center.  That looks 
interesting.
For Microsoft Office 10 users, the new "Virtual Ribbons" look interesting too 
-- even perhaps exciting.
These Virtual Ribbons appear to create menu-like structures that can be 
navigated easily.

I'm pretty excited about virtual bookmarks in Word.  Word has a built-in 
bookmark feature, but the list is often junked up with OLE Objects.  These book 
marks will be invisible to everyone but a JAWS user.
There appear to be lots of Braille enhancements, but since I don't use Braille, 
I couldn't evaluate that.
