FYI you should start JAWS before you open the browser and test file.

Also, since this is a problem with the enhanced grid, I'm not sure why it was removed from that category? Also, it works for my in JAWS 11 (although I hear an extra "blank" when I arrow between column headers.

This appears to be an issue with the base DataGrid?.

DojoX Grid and EnhancedGrid are deprecated in favor of dgrid and gridx.

You should upgrade your code to use one of those two grids.

We will consider patches to the old DojoX Grid code though.
