Hi Steve

Winboard 4.5 for JAWS,
Winboard 4.5 for JAWS and NVDA and
Winboard 4.5 Accessible Chess

are all the same exact program.

The program that gave me an idea to ask HGM if it could be fixed was called "Winboard for JAWS" and it was super broken. Shockingly it is still offered at Tim Mann's site and somewhere at Freedom Scientific, the maker of the JAWS screen reader.

The repaired and greatly refined and increased program is what I and HGM talk about and always starts off with Winboard 4.5. I liked Winboard 4.5 Accessible Chess after we had called it Winboard 4.5 for JAWS for a long time.

Developement for it has stopped as it recieves no complaints from its many users. HGM could add more languages and update it to his latest Winboard 4.7.3a but there has been no requests for more function or complaints so HGM is letting it ride and I agree. I have never heard of WinBoard 4.8 AC. I followed your link but could not find it, what is it? HGM's latest is definetely 4.7.3a.

Best Regards
