Hi Shiva,

It's a possibility that role=dialog is to blame for that. If you have text in your modal dialog that is not focusable, then you'll need to turn off forms mode in NVDA by hitting Insert + Space or the Esc key in JAWS.

Let me know if you have role=dialog on the dialog container and if this is the case.

Subject: [WebAIM] problem with pop up windows

Hello Everyone,
I'm not an everyday user of JAWS, I'm a software reviewer. I have popup window on my page and content of the window is not read when the popup window is opened ( I tried NVDA & JAWS). I can't find the related error with the Wave evaluation to report back to the vendors. What is your suggestion in this matter?
