If you want proof that the situation with is one which will be cropping up more and more, here's some. Go to

Then use your JAWS find to look for "personalized listings".

Hit enter on this link. What you're *supposed* to get is a "choose your location" page. Like the Amazon page, you don't. Like the Amazon page, this works fine in Window-Eyes, but does not work for JAWS. I cannot say whether it works with Firefox, as I do not have it.

Whatever has been done to the HTML, this will become more common, not less. One screen reader can handle it, it's important that the other can as well.
