Subject:        DoJo Accessibility Help



Hi,
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.
 
Thanks.
 
Jim
