I have been looking for the same thing for a while. afaik there is no such
beast. The closest I have seen is at
http://www.vortxweb.net/ccs-pg/test/drop_down_menu.html but I've just been
there and the link is dead :(
If you want the .js and .css files that control the menus to try and hack
for onFocus and onBlur you might be able to get keyboard functionality. My
javascript isn't that good otherwise I'd have done it by now ;)

I did mail the person who hacked the original menu (found at
) but although they said it would be a good idea they haven't got back.


ps sorry about the attachment in my last post. It's just my employer's
corporate disclaimer that gets attached to everything mail I send. It annoys
the hell out of me too.

By cascading menus I mean menus on a website that cascade. Usually you must
hold your mouse over them or click on them and then you get a number of
submenu items. 
I would  like to see an example where it is possible to navigate in the
submenu without using the mouse.

forgive my ignorance, but what exactly do you mean by "cascading menus"?

Does anyone know a good example of cascading menus which are accessible with

a screenreader and without a mouse?
