ColorPalette: Window-Eyes screen reader not speaking color names

Description (last modified by bill)

When focus on a cell in the ColorPalette, Window-Eyes 6.1f (beta) speaks "cell" but not the color name.

JAWS 9 (beta) speaks the color names correctly. I can not see anything wrong with the hierarchy and ARIA roles. Submitting so we can determine if this is a Window-Eyes bug or if there is something we can change in the widget.

Works ok in FF1.5 and Window-Eyes 5.5 so suspect Window-Eyes issue.

I confirm the same behavior on Window-Eyes 6.1 and FireFox? 2.0.0.7: Window-Eyes speaks "cell" but not the color name.

(In [10995]) refs #4798 remove tabindex=-1 from first img node as it is not needed. add waRole=presentation.

The role of each color block is "cell", the name is the color name but the value is empty. I'm not sure how I can specify the value. Each color block is implemented as an <img> tag but the source is a blank.gif. The color is coming via CSS as a background image with alt and title attributes specifying the color.

Window-Eyes will not be addressing ARIA until after version 7.0 so moving this to 1.3

since this relies on a change to window-eyes, moving to future

window-eyes is up to version 9.x now, so I'm going to assume this is working as expected given the lack of comments in 5+ years.
