Name, Role and State presented correctly:

  • JAWS 11 with IE 8 and Flash Player 10
  • Window Eyes 7.2 with IE 8 and Flash Player 10 (but if you select a button using the mouse, Window Eyes doesn't know about that)
  • Zoom Text 9.1 with Reader with FireFox 3.6.4 and Flash Player 10
  • Zoom Text 9.1 with Reader with IE 8 and Flash Player 10

Significant problems found in:

  • JAWS 11 with FireFox 3.6.4 and Flash Player 9 (Reads through page okay, but once a button is selected, JAWS says nothing but "Open Parent Document Button" even Insert Escape doesn't clear this up)
  • JAWS 11 with FireFox 3.6.4 and Flash Player 10 (even worse - doesn't read through the page at all.)
  • Window Eyes 7.2 with FireFox 3.6.4 and Flash Player 10 (Always announces state as "unchecked" even when items have been checked using keyboard commands)

Mysteries

  • NVDA 2009.1 with IE 8 and Flash Builder 10 (I could not get it to read the text using reading commands. However, using tab, shift tab and (once on the radio buttons) arrow keys, NVDA reads controls correctly with name, role and state. Hovering the mouse over any text on the page causes NVDA to read the text. Perhaps there's some way to get NVDA to read the text with reading keyboard commands ... )
  • Same results as just above using FireFox 3.6.4 instead of IE 8
