Re: JAWS 10 and Hidden Text

I believe they may have addressed the instances outlined here -
http://juicystudio.com/article/screen-readers-display-none.php - where
content hidden with display:none was being read by JAWS.

If this is indeed the case, then this is a very good thing as content
that is truly hidden with CSS should never be identified by screen
