Not yet. JAWS accessibility is being worked on as we speak. It works
with NVDA though, and NVDA is a free program. As a JAWS user, I
recommend getting NVDA because there are certain things that JAWS will
not work for that NVDA will, and vice versa. I'll let you know when
JAWS accessibility is complete. The Accessible Equation Editor has
only been in existence for maybe a year. Maybe not even that. Of
course, it was built on the Equation Editor, which has existed for a
long while, but the guy who created both didn't even know about the
screenreaders and Braille technology that blind people use until late
2014. Hope that helps!

Best,
Cricket Bidleman
