Bruce and others:
  Speaking as a developer for the Government I suggest you document this and
send it to Freedom Scientific.  I stress Document this because A phone call
leaves no paper trail.  There is a link for tech support on Freedom's site.
Send a message.

Subject: Another Site with A similar Problem to Amazon


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

http://tv.yahoo.ca

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.
