Re: keyboard accessibility while screen reader on

the person contacted me offlist and provided access to the problem UI.

The issue was caused by a focusable button element with aria-hidden=true on

<button aria-hidden="true">x</button>

Once that it was removed JAWS worked as expected.

Refer to 4th Rule of ARIA



Current Standards Work @W3C
