As a Window Eyes user of many years who is also competent if not amazingly proficient with JFW, working like JAWS is the last thing I want Window Eyes to do. Which is exactly the point. There can be plenty of arguments made about the philosophies behind the different UI's that JFW and Window Eyes employ, but the truth is that you couldn't use Window Eyes wanting it to be JFW more than you could use JFW wanting it to be Window Eyes. This is why I frowned on the JFW keyboard layout option. ON the one hand, I totally value the ease of transition for JFW users not familiar with Window Eyes. ON the other, you really can't slap the JFW layout onto the guts of Window Eyes no matter what you do because of their fundamental differences. So the JFW layout only ends up angering people like Teddy because it really isn't a JFW layout in the sense that they want it to be.
