aloha, again!

point 3 of my report was missing a sub-bullet:

QUOTE
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";
UNQUOTE

3B. usually, querying an element with focus is done with INSERT+TAB,
which -- when a checkbox has focus -- should cause JAWS to announce
the label for the form control, but when i issued that command on 
the test page, i received no feedback from JAWS -- the fact that the
DownArrow does cause JAWS to announce the label for the checkbox was
something i discovered when trying to move between the checkboxes 
using the UpArrow and DownArrow

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.
