Hi,

I'm doing an audit of a site that uses Javascript to check that forms have
been filled in properly. If required information is missing from the form a
Javascript alert message appears (in it's own dialog box). Is this an
accessibility problem for people using screen reading technology - or are
dialog boxes easily recognised and dealt with by the software and the user?

Thanks,
Jim
