Re: JAWS 10 and Hidden Text

Hi there. I'm just curious if Test 1 and Test 2 were supposed to show
anything or not? Because using Voiceover there was nothing under those
headings after the description. Test 3 worked just fine.

Was that what you are trying to see? Because if there's supposed to be
content there for the first 2 tests, then Voiceover did not read it.
