Re: HTML Fieldset missing a Legend

Thus I get the info of the legend-name entering with *arrow keys*.

But what would be the best realization, if I explore a form with tab-key or in jaws with jaws-key+F5?
I'd only hear 'Yes' or 'No', 'red', 'green' an 'blue' as options or 'Accept' in a checkbox for what?

Should the related Question be simply named in the heading, presupposing that users know how to deal name "Yes" etc. with their AT?

They don't ignore legend, but they only announce the legend when an SR user enters a fieldset area, rather than for each and every focusable/form control inside it (same way they only announce the name of a named region when you enter it).
