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

Thanks, Mallory and Michael! I'm unsure of the best way to build the
legend (like map legend, not legend tag) you mention. Can you describe it
a bit more?

I created a quick band-aid that removed the role=button and appended an
off-screen div that said to click it to select this answer (worded nicer
that I explained),. This worked with JAWS, had no impact on NVDA (it still
read the math fine), but for some reason, VoiceOver stopped reading the
mathml with that change.

I really wish these AT companies would collaborate! It's like we're back
at Netscape vs Internet Explorer.

Thanks again,
