Window-Eyes is speaking the accordion arrows as question

Reported by: Becky Gibson Owned by: ptbrunet
Priority: low Milestone: 1.0
Component: Accessibility Version: 0.9
Keywords: Cc: Becky Gibson
Blocked By: Blocking:


the arrows for expanding/contracting an accordion container are properly marked with waiRole=Presentation (altho try adding tabindex=-1 to make sure FF includes them in a11y hierarchy). Window-Eyes speaks the arrows as part of the accordion title but JAWS does not. I'm not sure if we can do anything about this or not. This may be a Firefox bug that is fixed in Firefox 3 builds.

Using with FF2 and both JAWS 9 331 and JAWS 10 113 not in virtual mode, tabbing into an accordian first moves to role PAGETAB. Hear "pane 1 tab". Pressing tab again moves to role PROPTERTY_PAGE. Hear nothing. The accessible hierarchy looks like PAGETAB, PROPERTY_PAGE, TEXT. This could be fixed by putting focus on the text object not the property page. JAWS would ignore focus on a PROPOERTY_PAGE.

I don't hear W-E 6.1D speaking anything related to the icon. Here's what I hear: When the tab gets focus: "pane 1, 4 of 9". When the property page gets focus: "property page". So W-E has problems with the property page like JAWS. The "n of m" is seen in Inspect so it has nothing to do with the screen reader. I'll investigate.

For the first comment above, refer to #4484. Instead of focus moving to the tab pagetab object and then the property_page object, focus would move to the first focusable object in the pane (and if there is nothing focusable, e.g. static text, maybe the static text can be given focus).

The second comment is addressed by #4127.

FF3 is correctly ignoring the up/down arrows and creating an acc name of just the title of the pane. FF2 is creating an acc name with the up/down arrow characters at the beginning of the name.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Closing as won't fix since the issue has been resolved in FF3, i.e. the arrow character entities have been removed from the accessible name by FF3.
