Re: Silverlight accessibility

Good point. I don't have an Apple or Linux computer. Would you try the same page and report your results?

How about orca and VoiceOver? Windows isn't the entire story.

FYI: I just tried the following Silverlight site with the latest versions of 
three screen readers:

It seemed to work well with NVDA 2010.1, worked partially with Window-Eyes 7.2 
public beta 1, and did not work at all with JAWS 11.0.756.

I thought one of the major feature enhancements of JAWS 11 is support for UIA, 
the accessibility API that Silverlight uses instead of MSAA (Silverlight 
controls are a subset of Windows Presentation Foundation, the successor to 
Windows Forms in the .NET Framework).  Is some kind of manual configuration 
needed to make the latest JAWS work with Silverlight?  I tried both IE 7 and 
Firefox 3.6.
