Re: please test these expanding content areas for me

Using JAWS 12 and IE7, I found Mandatory Waivers, but it was not a tabbable link. I did discover that there appears to be a link with no link text that shows up just previous to each of the menus here. So if I hit enter on the empty link previous to Mandatory Waivers, I can then find the 4 other links you mention.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [WebAIM] please test these expanding content areas for me

Would it be possible for some screen reader users to tell me if it is possible (and practical) to navigate to the content that is in the expanding content areas on this page? http://sbctc.edu/college/f_tuitionwaivers.aspx . I doubt if they are accessible by screen readers as I can't seem to tab to them.

The first expanding area is entitled "Mandatory Waivers". Inside that expanding content area are links to 4 other web pages. These are the 4 link labels inside the expanded content.

Children and Spouse of Totally Disabled or POW/MIA or Deceased Eligible Veterans or National Guard Members<http://sbctc.edu/college/_f-tuitionwaivers_childofdisableddeceasedpow.aspx>;

Children and Spouses of Deceased or Disabled Law Enforcement Officers or Firefighters <http://sbctc.edu/college/_f-tuitionwaivers_childofdeceasedlawenforcemt.aspx>; (NEW CHANGES IN 2010)

Thank you very much.
