aloha, rich!

using IE9 beta and JAWS 12 (latest official release) i can minimally 
access the contents of

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-canvas-api/2010OctDec/att-
0035/CanvasEditor.html

1. when i issue a ReadAll command, i hear: "Show As Show Bs";

2. when i tab navigate to the document via the IE9 chrome, i hear: 
"Show As Show Bs";

3. when i tab navigate the document itself, i hear: "Show As" -- a 
subsequent tab does not cause JAWS to announce the second item in
the canvas ("show Bs")

3A. if i tab navigate the document itself, whilst nothing is announced
when i tab a second time, a DownArrow causes JAWS to speak "Show Bs";

4. the checkboxes which the document source indicates should be included
in the canvas element are totally invisible to JAWS;

5. i could not determine if pressing the SPACEBAR while on 1 of the 2 
checkboxes activated the checkbox;

6. i could not use JAWS' checkbox hot key (x) to access either
checkbox;

7. using the "List of Form Controls" command (INSERT+F5) i received a 
list of two items:

check box not checked
check box not checked

but only the existence and state of the checkboxes are reported, not
their labels ("Show As" and "Show Bs"); when i attempted to select
one of the checkboxes using this mechanism, a recheck of the "list
of form controls" indicated that the checkbox remained unchecked

7A. i could not activate either checkbox using the "List of Form Controls"

let me know if you want/need more testing

hope this helps, gregory.
