Hi, Susie,

Are you also testing your website using speech recognition software (e.g., Dragon) without a mouse?

What if the first question we asked was, "what is so unique about this situation that it justifies exclusion? instead of, "how much does it cost to make it accessible?

Subject: [WebAIM] no mouse activity

Hi Listers,

In testing an application here at USDA, Farm Service Agency, I am having a problem and I am sure there is some success criteria I can site for this problem. When using the keyboard, with or without JAWS, there is a time out which happens. I am sure this is tied to not moving the mouse in a certain length of time. Do any of you know what WCAG2.0 criteria this is breaking?
