Re: ARIA Question About Application Mode


From: Jonathan Avila

One thing that could be hapenning is that the scripts are looking for key presses and not the click event. In virtual cursor mode the screen reader by default will call the click method when enter is pressed. They may also be watching for mouse up or down events so it works for the mouse user without support click.

I am testing a site with JAWS, and when I look back through the tag tree for ARIA attributes, using the JAWS facility for that purpose, I am not seeing role="application." Here's what is happening, though. The site is very heavily scripted and uses ARIA. On some pages I can't trigger controls unless I take JAWS out of Browse mode. What should I look for that might cause this?
