Hi Martin,

Thanks for finding this. I updated the defect. I believe this to be fully
resolved and fixed. It is implemented in IE9. I provided clarification and
the canvas accessibility subteam has separated out specific defects related
to caret, selection, and focus ring tracking.

Interestingly we tested screen reading support with IE 9 of two canvas
drawn checkboxes and with a minor ARIA enhancement to the code sample are
being read by JAWS 12.The ARIA enhancement will not be required after
Freedom Scientific fixes the bug I have logged.

Hi Rich,

sifting through bugs tagged with a11yTF I found #10964 where there has
been some discussion, but not recently. Since I don't know if it's on
your radar I just wanted to inform you that we found this bug being idle
for a while and that it needs the attention of the canvas sub-team.
