Hi Roger,

It's been a while since I checked it, but last year, this menu, designed by Samuel Sirois, was a great example of device independence (worked equally well with the keyboard): <http://www.defisportif.com/en/index.php>.

Is this the type of menu you're looking for? I'm sure I could get him to help, if needed.

I seen examples which I think could be considered accessible, but I havenít come across one that is both keyboard accessible and very screen reader friendly. The Mozilla site (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/) is probably the nearest I have seen. It allows me to tab from navigation item to navigation item and use the arrow key to move through the drop down choices. However, when I used it with JAWS 9 I couldnít use the arrow keys.
