not too certain about this, but I do know for a fact there are Jaws scripts for 
Visual Studio 6 and Visual Studio 2005.  Whether or not either of those script 
sets will work for 2003 I am not sure.  And at the risk of sounding like an 
advertisement, you may also want to try my website Blind Crawler and see what 
the search engine comes up with.
JohnPG search for all of your Jaws scripts at
Also be sure to check out Blind Crawler's Legend of the Green Dragon server at
There will be more to come from Blind Crawler very soon.

  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 

  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,
