JAWS is not non-GUI, it uses sound and keyboard commands to navigate
the GUI. The real question is whether the X-window package used by
GnuCash on Windows is JAWS compatible. I rather suspect not, but I
don't use GnuCash on Windows so I don't really know. In a former
lifetime I was responsible for JAWS support in a Windows application
(Arbortext's Epic document system). Making it work well requires
adding lots of obscure COM interfaces to the application. This would
require significant changes to the Windows version of GnuCash. Even if
it does work with JAWS it won't work well.
By the way, ask JAWS to spell GnuCash. It isn't what you think.
