Hey everyone,

i know you guys will be able to give me the best advice about this.  (i almost 
started on a wild goose chase for JAWS scripts, but thought better of it.)

i just installed Visual Studio 2003 on my brother's computer so that i can 
introduce him to VB.NET.  i'm really surprised that JAWS behaves very well for 
selecting controls and adding them to the form, but performs very badly 
everywhere else.  In the code window, it just keeps reading the path of the 
file instead of the text at the cursor.  In the properties window, it reads the 
value repeatedly (i guess because it's actually refreshing, though i can't tell 

How do you guys get around this problems?  Does anyone here use this version of 
Visual Studio, or should we be using something more accessible?

Thanks so much for the help,
