Hi here is an example of a toolbar using ARIA active descendant that I put together.  

The sample is focused on in http://codetalks.org/source/video/Video3/Video3.html a screencast I put together.  Make sure to check out http://wiki.codetalks.org/wiki/index.php/References_for_Video_3 for additional comments/corrections that will be incorporated into the final video.  

I will have a video 6 for live regions online tomorrow that I would appreciate your comments on.  I recommend following the instructions in http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/aria-practices/#liveprops for any planning you do on live regions as there have been recent changes to the ARIA specification.

Subject: ARIA examples and Screen REader

Hello everyone,

I am looking for some examples of aria implementations which work with 
Screen Readers like JAWS V 10and Firefox v3. We would like to develop a 
new website here in the office and would like to incorporate some of the 
new technologies but in a way that blind and visually impaired people 
can access it.
If someone could send me some examples or links where to find some stuff 
I would really appriciate that.
I am looking especially for live regions and toolbars - if they work at 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Kind regards
