on windows, you are better off to stick with msaa and hacks but this  
has more to do with software than with the web.

Hi All,

Another quick question for the list if I may.

Does anyone know how well UI Automation is supported by screen readers  
such as Jaws, WindowEyes and others such as NVDA? As I understand it  
Iaccessible2 is sort of cross platform but not fully (this I am still  
a bit unclear on I admit) so I am curious to know if UIA would be a  
better route to go down with regards to a robust cross platform  
accessibility API.

Thanks in advance, Henny
