Firefox 8.0 JAWS 13 Menu demos 1.9pre


  1. Inconsistency in ability to interact with menus when tabbing to the menus or pressing enter. Almost never works when first tabbing to menu, must tab away and then back for arrow key navigation of items to work correctly.
  1. Cannot dismiss menu by pressing escape key (it is a common pattern for escape to stop interaction with interactive controls, textarea, etc.).
  1. When interacting with the menu pressing enter on an item does not do anything, and does not stop the interaction, it is still necessary to tab away to interact with the menu.

Having to tab away from the menu to the next focusable item in order to resume virtual PC cursor mode means that large sections of the page may be missed.

These problems also exist with Top-aligned sub menus and Navigation menu demos.

A particular note on Navigation menu, pressing enter, as one might expect to interact with the control, activates the menu link and switches to a new page.

These should all be addressed.
