Re: ChromeVox comparison to JAWS or VoiceOver

ChromeVox doesn't perform well in my experience when comparing accessibility
support in JAWS and NVDA using IE and FF, especially regarding complex
component types that require the use of ARIA. Part of this results in the
exposure of accessibility related properties and methods in Chrome itself,
so it's not just with ChromeVox, since you will see many of the same issues
when using JAWS or NVDA in Chrome.
