I'm using Windows with high-contrast mode some years ago, what i remember is one thing, with earlier Jaws versions - E.G. 5.0, 6.0 - there was a problem in Outlook at the message list and in the menus, if you choose the High-Contrast #1 scheme, where the background is black, and the foreground is yellow, the background of an active titlebar is blue, of an inactive is lightblue, etc... I changed the foreground to white, after Jaws announced the selected menuitem or mail in the list, earlier the previous item was spoken.

Has anyone ever used any of the accessibility features control panel offers in windows xp? The high contrast, mouse keys, sound something, etc? If so, how do they work with jaws and would you recommend them at all? Do any of the high contrasts interfere with the way jaws works at all? And what of those mouse keys? Do you think it would be easier to use the mouse with those or by keep taking chances with the jaws curser?
