Re: popup not accessible

I has to do with I believe the popup itself and not the elements
within the popup.

I'm sorry I cannot show you online.. There are two functions in the
popup a cookie function and a accept or decline to view a pdf...
I have included here... I replaced all text with www or vvv, but it
is all in the JS accept the actual buttons which are divs I tried
changing to hrefs and added tabindexing... I tried adding
role="link".. I am just beginning to get up to speed on wai-aria so
maybe I picked the incorrect role.. .

jQuery(function ($) {
$('#confirm-dialog input.confirm, #confirm-dialog
a.confirm').click(function (e) {
var username=getCookie("vvvv");
if (username!=null && username!="")
confirm("<h3>vvvvv</h3> "
+ "<p class='borders'>vvvvv.</p>"

+ "<p class='indent'>"
+ "vvvv."
+ "</p><p class='indent'>"
+ vvvvvv", function () {

function confirm(message, callback) {
/*closeHTML: "<a href='#' title='Close' class='modal-close' >Close</a>",*/
position: ["20%",],
overlayId: 'confirm-overlay',
containerId: 'confirm-container',
minHeight: "300",
minWidth: "500",
onShow: function (dialog) {
var modal = this;

$('.message', dialog.data[0]).append(message);
$('.header', dialog.data[0]).append("<h2>vvvvv</h2>");

// if the user clicks "yes"
$('.yes', dialog.data[0]).click(function () {
if ($.isFunction(callback)) {
modal.close(); // or $.modal.close();


#confirm {display:none;}
#confirm-overlay {background-color:#eee; cursor:wait;}
#confirm-container {height:140px; width:420px; /*font: 16px/22px
