Re: JAWS Accordion test

Hi Al,

Yes, the accordion menu functions well with JAWS 10 & Jaws 7.0.
However, JAWS identified "Nursery Rhyme" and "Early Astronomer" as same page
links for the user but no additional information was available to the user
nor was the user pointed to another section on the page when these links
were clicked.

My only concern is that if the content is available for users as if the
menus were expanded then these options should not be identified as links as
it creates doubts in user's mind.

Thanks & Regards,
