Re: JAWS Accordion test

Hi there. I use Apple's VoiceOver on a new macbook. I'm also newly
blind and new to this language. I think I now know what accordian
menus are.

Anyway, I think it worked fine, if I know what I'm supposed to hear. I
heard, "link, Nursery rhyme" and then some of Mary Had a Little Lamb.
Then something like "end of hidden content" and then "link, actronaut"
something or other and then something brief about that. Sorry, I'm
paraphrasing as I haven't quite mastered toggling between windows and
not loosing my place in my typing.

Thats what I heard on a macbook as a newly blind screenreader and mac
user. Hope it helps.
