Sean,

There is this effort from Freedom Scientific and TPG, to document Jaws 
support for HTML, CSS, ARIA, and SVG:
https://github.com/FreedomScientific/VFO-standards-support/issues

It's also a place where issues can be filed with Jaws support for any of 
those four technologies.

It's a community effort, so help improving the documentation is always 
welcome.
