Re: Are JavaScript alerts accessible?

Thanks for the various responses. And the suggestion to use ARIA. I
don't think ARIA is going to be the solution in this case because the
web site is using XHTML 1.0 Transitional, for which, as I understand it,
you cannot load additional modules.

I also agree that JS alerts are likely to be very irritating. I think it
will just have to stay as it is for the moment.

Thanks again!
