In addition, a few years back, I wrote some scripts that help with using 2003. You can read about them at

They're a bit antiquated by now of course (missing the use of MSAA), but they still appear to work...

Best wishes,

Please reffer to
and you will have the oficial solution which should work. I tested
visual c++ and it works well, this os one of the compilers I use.
Do not try to mix these scripts with vs 6 or other .net scripts.

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
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 visually).

  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,
