The onchange event will not allow keyboard users to select through the menu.
Try tabbing through the menu.  The solution would be to add a "Go" button.

I have a design in front of me which uses a drop down menu that fires an
action when the users selects and option, presumably using an on change
event.

there is no 'click and go' button

how does this fair with you good people?
I am concerned that a voice browser user may have to click on the menu to
access it, which will register as a change and so make to hard for the users
to access the options

advice?

we have already looked at the issue of using scripts for this sort of
functionality.

many thanks
