Hi Greg,

Good example. I don't get it as the code is similar.

In yours

div id="modal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="modalTitle 
modalDescription" aria-hidden="false" style="display: block;">

then in James

<div id="dialog" aria-describedby="description" 
aria-labelledby="heading" role="dialog" style="display: block;">

Yours has a neg tabindex - and VO announces it, but not James.

Maybe I'm missing something here, tis likely. It's late in Ireland right 
now, time for reverse engineering in the morning.
