I'm interested in the same issue. I'm using and would like the
validationsummary to be placed above the form, so that the user will have a
list of the errors.  I can't figure out how to do this.  I thought of the
idea of setting focus to the error list as an alternative. I hope someone
can give an insight into the best way to present form errors with to
persons who are using jaws.
