Undetectable controls, an example

Hello List:

I thought this might be of interest. Here is an example web site that I
find interesting. It is the site for NPR news.


Once the page has loaded, you can listen to NPR's news by finding the level
2 heading NPR newscast. Then press the down arrow once and you will be on a
level 3 heading that usually reads 4min 45seconds. If you press enter at
this point, the audio will start. JAWS gives no indication that there is a
control here. I found this control by chance. Have a great day.
