Actually, it is effectively Firefox that handles ARIA, not JAWS.
Firefox will communicate the ARIA mark-up to MSAA, which translates it
into something JAWS understands, regardless of the version of JAWS.
Do you have plans to use Firefox 3? FF2 and FF3 handle the ARIA in
slightly different ways.
Also, are you planning to test the Lightbox within Sakai's Image
Gallery tool, or the stand-alone version with the fruit?
