Dear Brian & List:
I thought VFO Group would do JAWS scripting or put you in contact with a certified Jaws Scripter.
I do know that someone wanted a proprietary application for a car rental firm scripted to work with JAWS and was quoted thousands of dollars for the work and advised that every timed the firm rolled out a new version the work would have to be completely redone.
I believe the would- be scripting contractor was the Smith-Kettlewell Foundation of San Francisco.
I can see changes being required for a new version of the App, but a complete rewrite. That seems like someone trying to make a large company pay and pay to support only a few employees.
It may have been a proprietary telemarketing program. However, I think the employer to be was misquoted for the job.

If you contact NV Access, I feel certain they could point you to someone. Alternatively, even ask here. Most JAWS scripters are self-taught, or were at one time anyway. I believe NVDA scripts are done in Python (though I could be wrong) and there are plenty of Python programmers out there.
