ToggleButton: changed label not spoken properly by screen reader

If you change the label attribute on a ToggleButton? using buttonWidget.attr('label', 'new label) each time the button is pressed, JAWS does not speak the correct label.

I suspect this is a JAWS issue but creating this ticket in order to commit a test case.

sent another inquiry to JAWS and Firefox developers - not likely to be fixed for 1.5 so moving to future.

Mike, can you check if this is still a problem with the latest version of JAWS?

A pull request would be welcome for this if it is still an issue, but given the lack of activity over the past 5+ years, I'm closing this one.
