Re: mathml in nested div with role=button not read by Jaws

The example works great with VoiceOver on iOS, but VoiceOver supports
MathML. I couldn't get anything read with NVDA or JAWS. Options C and D
of the first question would say the word "math" with NVDA but options A and
B did not. Removing the button role didn't change anything. But I've
never had good luck with MathML on NVDA or JAWS so I don't want to make any
conclusions about your test site.
