Oops.....  I now get it!  <grin>  If I click on the Creg David link, a
"pop-up" happens.  F I didn't know to expect a pop-up, I wouldn't of
known.  That could be  aproblem.

Warmly,

Well screen reader users were my particular concern.

We've had a report on peepo.com, and this is one of the issues being
addressed.
Not having jaws, or knowing at this time how to configure it suitably, I

am looking for some qualified responses on whether our test page is
appropriate in this respect.
Has anyone visited http://www.peepo.com/alfy/music/c.html, and used a
screenreader, preferably jaws, and does it work?

equally, is there another method that will check if it is working, ie by

throwing up a dialogue, or sending to the status bar etc.
for instance in mozilla 1.1 the info: "this will open in a new window",
is written all over the screen, as a default(just installed today) and I

dont think this is appropriate.

thanks

jonathan
