dijit.Menu non-functional in JAWS 10/IE

Description

Open JAWS 10. Go to: http://archive.dojotoolkit.org/nightly/dojotoolkit/dijit/tests/test_Menu.html Tab to a menu item. Attempt to use the arrow keys to navigate the menu. Notice the sub-menus can't be navigated and the screen reader is confused, reading off random things. I have confirmation from several sight-impaired end users that the menu's built on dijit.Menu are no usable in JAWS 10/IE.

What version of IE are you using? screen reader support for the dijit widgets requires Firefox 3 or later or IE 8. See http://docs.dojocampus.org/dijit-a11y-statement. Although I do need to update that with the IE 8 information.

I tested Dojo 1.3.2 as well as 1.4.0 with IE 8 and JAWS 10 and 11. With JAWS 10 you must be in virtual pc cursor OFF mode in order to interact with the dijit widgets, including the menu. JAWS 11 will automatically detect the dijit widgets. The menu bar works correctly with JAWS - I can navigate them with the keyboard and they are spoken correctly.
