Hi John,

While I can't speak authoritatively, I have a 40-minute JAWS 8 demo on 
my new Vista laptop, and it seems to play very nicely with both IE7 and FF2.

I haven't yet tested any of the WAI-ARIA live regions demos with it, but 
for normal browsing, no problems.

Hope this tiny bit of info helps,
