Hi all,

I have to design a custom contextmenu for a particular element on the
page which overwrites the browser's context menu. I plan to use a popup
object to show the menu. The menu container will be a div element and
each menu will be a link or a span.

What is the best way to make this context menu accessible? My initial
findings suggest that Jaws has problems detecting that the popup has
come up on the screen.

Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated.

Kiran Kaja.
