Hi Ryan,
WCAG is technology neutral. Different techniques can be used to meet its 
requirements based on what browser, assistive technology, etc., one is 
using. So from that perspective, JAWS will support it.

When you begin looking at specifics of how to meet a specific AAA 
requirement using specific pieces of technology, you may encounter 
significant restraints. If you provided more details, this list could 
likely assist you with advice.

Regards

I’m not sure how to ask this, but does JAWS have a limit for meeting the 
criteria for WCAG 2.0? In other words, does JAWS 12.0 meet the criteria? 
11.0? 10.0? So forth? How far back do we not have to worry about the 
criteria and assume the user has an “at least” version xx.0? Same question 
for internet browser? IE9, IE8, IE7…?
