           Summary: screen reader reads contents of entire form
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://validator.w3.org
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Website
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: oedipus@hicom.net

when accessing the validator using a screen reader (JAWS for Windows), the
entire form, including the "hidden" "More Options" are included in JAWS' List
of Form Controls, and are still in the tab-navigation order of the form (one
has to tab through all of the "Advanced" options in order to reach the submit
button.

also, this form which i am currently filling out
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/enter_bug.cgi?product=Validator
needs to have the labels for the form controls explicitly bound to the form
controls, using the for/id relationship defined for the LABEL element; without
such an explicit binding, it is difficult to tell with accuracy what the
purpose of the form control one has tabbed to
