Javascript alert accessibility?


From: Mary Utt

My company's web application uses Javascript alerts for error
checking form fields, and the question has arisen -- are these

My reading seems to indicate that they are, so long as we do
not rely on mouse events to trigger them and so long as the
focus moves to the alert box.

True? False? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks,
