It would also depend on how the java script is written.  Using the dom is
not effective if the code is broken which it often is and if you are using
ie and run across something that is not ie specific, that can be problematic
too.  I don't think there are many screen readers around that "screen
scrape" any more

That would probably depend on whether the screen reader uses the DOM or
tries to screen scrape.
