Thanks Bryan
You are right, I was looking at an incomplete example where I forgot
to add aria-hidden to a background component, whoops.
I did find it odd that Jaws was still exposing the content in IE, but
I just upgraded to Jaws 17 and thought that was the problem, vs. me
being the problem. *grin*
Perhaps I need an upgrade too
