Re: [External Sender] articulate try mode

Write the documentation in such a way that the accessible name and role of
actionable elements is part of the explanation ("My Account" button) and
that you provide location relative to other elements in code order ("below
the main page header"). I don't see why you couldn't mix this with visual
references (the blue "My Account" button on the left), as long as there
were enough non-visual details for a user to understand. If there are too
many cursor-related details, I suppose you could provide another section
written with non-visual and/or keyboard-only users in mind.
