Description (last modified by ptbrunet)

Open v1.0 http://archive.dojotoolkit.org/dojo-2007-11-05/dojotoolkit/dijit/tests/form/test_Textarea.html or nightly http://archive.dojotoolkit.org/nightly/dojotoolkit/dijit/tests/form/test_Textarea.html

FF2/3: The accessible value of the dojo textareaa is a bunch of javascript. It should be the text visible in the text field.

IE6/7: The accessible value of the dojo textarea is not set; the text is found on the accessible name which is not correct. The accessible name is typically set to the label text.

This is actually an issue with the textarea widget. It prevents the screen reader from speaking the text value in the field.

I was wrong about this. The role that gets focus is a pane and the Window-Eyes screen reader fetches the text child below it in the accessible hierarchy. Window-Eyes works well. JAWS will need some work. Window-Eyes doesn't work well with IE 6/7 so that will need work too.

I am closing this.
