Fairly simply it means that if you are using JavaScript in a page the
contents of that Javascript need to be accessible to assistive technology.
In the example given the pop-up Javascript box (alert dialog, whatever) is
allowable if the content is available (readable) to assistive technology.

In simple language: Is the Javascript pop-up read when viewing the page in
assitive technolgy?  If yes, your page is compliant.

Hope that helps-

Got 508?

Subject: Section 508 Question on Javascript - Section 1194.22, Paragraph

I have tried to get to some sort of understanding of
this on the Section 508 list at Trace, but am still in
the land of confusion!

The thread starts here

I have been asked to write an article on accessibility
which covers Section 508 so would like to give a
reasonable interpretation of this regulation.

Anyone care to have a go?
