The Browse button is obviously in the DOM because HPR can read it. HPR does
not use MSAA to read a web page.

Subject:  Re: INPUT TYPE="file", speech output, & triggering mechanisms



Al Gilman asked, in relation to the "Browse" button that enables a file
selection interface to be invoked via the INPUT TYPE="file" control type:
> Does IE put the 'browse' button in the DOM or only to the screen through
MSAA?

CARTESIAN, adj. Relating to Descartes, a famous philosopher, author of the
celebrated dictum, _Cogito ergo sum_--whereby he was pleased to suppose he
demonstrated the reality of human existence. The dictum might be improved,
however, thus: _Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum_--"I think that I think,
therefore I think that I am;" as close an approach to certainty as any
philosopher has yet made.      -- Ambrose Bierce, _The Devil's Dictionary_
