Name and Title Attributes

Hey folks,

I'm new to these questions, but am trying to get up to speed. Thanks for the
good information I've found here so far.

I have a question about the use of the Name and Title attributes in frames.
I've been looking on the web but haven't found a clear answer. What gets
read by the screen reader (HPR or JAWS) when opening a frame: the Title, the
Name, the Title of the Page in the frame, all of these? I don't yet have a
machine with JAWS to test on, so I can't just run these tests myself.
