View Full Version : 508 compliance : JAWS doesn't read the options of a SimpleComboBox

23 Jul 2010, 6:23 AM

In my application I used SimpleComboBox widget to provide a drop down to my user. Now as part of 508 compliance process when we are reading the page, JAWS (screen reader) is not reading the options of drop down while navigate through options either using mouse or keyboard. It is reading only after option selection. As per 508 standards options of a drop down must be readable while navigation.

Can some one help me finding the way to acheive that?

I would try GXT 2.2 Beta 1 and set GXT.isAriaEnabled to true
