Re: selecting ARIA Tabs and Windows screen readers

Thanks for your onlist response, and thanks to others who responded offlist.

In the end, NVDA and JFW handled this two-tabbed (very simple ARIA
implementation) differently.
NVDA handled it as I would have expected i.e. hit enter on the tab,
NVDA reports it as selected, and arrowing up and down (or left and
right -- depending on how the tabs are positioned) changes the
selection. That's with FF 36 and NVDA 2015-1.

I don't know whether there's a real bug in JFW, but since I'm using
15, at the moment, and 16 is released, I'm going to have to call this
"done" on my end.

I wasn't at liberty to post a test page here.
