I'm more of a glorified user sometimes, so that's why I'm asking this. I'm trying to guide some developers about where to look in the Dojo documentation about making some things more accessible. The symptoms mainly are that if you can hover over something to expand it, that ability is not being spoken by JAWS. Or if you can click something, JAWS isn't saying that you can. I'd like to give sound guidance.

At the same time, I notice, with other scripting technologies, that NVDA will say that something is clickable when JAWS doesn't. So I guess that under this question is also the broader question of when do you know that something is coded correctly and you're encountering the screen reader's inability or whatever to follow the standard? But the first question is the most important for now.
