Hi All,

Just a point of clarification as you're wrestling with what to test for
various design patterns: Are screen readers expected to support the
keyboard interaction models that are documented in the WAI-ARIA Authoring
Practices? And if so, and they already have the prescribed keys mapped to
some other purpose, how are they expected to handle that?

Since the keyboard interaction models are very clearly defined, perhaps
that could be our basis for testing, unless screen readers aren't
necessarily expected to support those models.

Thanks for clarifying.
