Javascript accessibility is not quite as straightforward as HTML
accessibility. There is so much you can do with javascript, which
means that there are lots of potential issues. Ensuring javascript
accessibility requires a good understanding of accessibility and
assistive technologies in general. It usually requires actual testing
to determine if the scripted content is truly accessible.

There is a good overview article that covers most of the issues on the
WebAIM site at http://www.webaim.org/techniques/javascript/
