Re: Grid support for aria-setsize and aria-posinset

Hi Alexander - 

Thanks for your response.  What version of Firefox supports aria-setsize and aria-posinset on rows?  I'm testing using FF 3.6.12 using both NVDA 2010.2 and JAWS 12 and don't hear the row positions announced according to the positions I have defined.  Could that be due to the screen readers not yet supporting the group position that you are exposing?  Here is a like to my test example if you would like to take a look to see if there is anything I am doing wrong.

The use case would be using a datagrid to present paged data and only the current page is present in the DOM.  In such cases you would want to communicate the ordinal position of a row relative to the current page and total number of pages and rows.
