Firefox 7.0.1 JAWS 13 Tabs demo 1.9pre


With or Without a screen-reader it is not possible to sort (reorder) tabs. There are no controls present to allow for the tabs to be sorted.


Needs further research of best UI pattern to expose to keyboard only / screen-reader users.

The sortable tabs demo actually just invokes the sortable widget on the tab list. So this is actually an issue for the sortable plugin, which has no ARIA or keyboard support at all right now and will be rewritten from scratch. Since we're not tackling any accessibility issues for interactions right now, I'm going to close this and we'll revisit during the rewrite.
