Hi Nancy

I had a quick look at the links you provided and the answer is yes and
no. The grids are not seen as tables by Jaws so one cannot navigate in
a manner that is easy as with no column and row header info it can get a
bit confusing what company one is dealing with.

But as the info is linearised it is possible to search for the company
you are interested and once you have figured out the column headers it
is possible to understand the info as you arrow down the page.

So my answer is really yes I can get access to the information but from
an accessibility point of view I would say it needs work.

I was wondering if anyone know whether the grid samples from Ext JS are

http://extjs.com/deploy/dev/examples/samples.html or
http://extjs.com/deploy/dev/examples/grid/array-grid.html is a specific
example I am wondering about.

Thank you
