Yes, I found that in the docs and as it turns out, I had a code problem that
was preventing it from working.

 

I don't know how to "see" respec errors . I assume this would have generated
an error, but where are they output? I can't find anything when searching
for them with JAWS.

 

In this particular case, my defect was an extra </ like .

<code>dialog</</code>

 

It took me almost an hour and some smart luck to find the problem.

Hi Matt - I just checked this, and according to the respec documentation
this feature is still supported, and in my copy of the ARIA practices it
seems to work. Can you indicate where it seems not to be working? Is it
possible the anchor reference is incorrect, perhaps because ID of target
section was changed? Michael

Hi all,

 

I think respect did this . if you write a link without link text and refer
to a section in the same doc, like:

<a href="#ID_OF_SECTION"></a>

It used to generate link text for you.

 

Now, that seems to not be working, at least not in the APG. 

 

Do others see this problem? Was that feature intentionally removed?

 

Matt
