Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Modal Dialog Content Not Being Read

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 -B
