Hello everyone,

I usually just read the list, but this one really caught my eye as I've
been looking for such a thing too.

What is everyone's opinion on the Ultimate Drop Down Menu by Brothercake
(http://www.udm4.com/)?

This has been the only one I've found to be free and the creator says it
is accessible.

Thanks
Bill

Subject: [WebAIM] good examples of javascript "roll over" menus with an
accessible alternative

Hello:

I'm working with a client who has committed to designing with CSS. This

has been a real struggle for them, so I'm trying to speed them along
with
some examples that won't require them to sacrifice "look and feel," at
least as much as possible.

They want to have those javascript menus that show choices when the user

rolls over the main choice with a mouse.

Does anyone have good visually appealing examples that render in an
alternative fashion when javascript is turned off, when the keyboard is
used, and/or when a screen reader is used?

I was looking at what Google offers when searching on keywords such as
"accessible javascript menus," but the resulting articles didn't seem to
be
terribly current.

Thanks for any links to sites or articles.Apologies, in advance, for
potential cross-posting

Best,
Jennifer
