I have some pulldown menus that don't open for Amanda when she hits the
"space" bar in NVDA.  Instead, she has to use alt-down_arrow.  I'd like
to know if there is some ARIA goodness I should be incuding in my HTML.

FWIW, I'm using jQuery to respond to events, reload options, etc.  See
below for a code extract.

-r

<script>
 $(function() {
   var h0 = { 'pm_list': [ "epub" ] };
   $('#axap_options_menu').load('/Options', h0);

   $('#axap_options_menu').change(
     function(event) {
       /* Get selection info for pulldown menu. */
       var pm_val = $(event.target).val();
       var pm_var = $('option:selected', this).attr('id');
...

<div id='axap_options_pane'>
 <label for='axap_options_menu'><b>Options:</b></label>&nbsp;
 <select id='axap_options_menu' name='axap_options'></select>
</div>
