[Vrstream] BARD Downloads and JAWS?

I'm not a JAWS user (nor a user of any other screenreader), but I do have a 
suggestion.  Rather than dump IE9, why not install Firefox and give it a 
try.  That should eliminate all things Microsoft as far as browsers go.  You 
may find that Firefox meets your needs better, anyway.
