JAWS does not Consistently Announce that Fields are Drilldowns

Siebel CRM - Version SIA [23030] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Open UI, several issues with Jaws Screen reader were reported:

When tabbing though cells in a list applet row JAWS does not announce the column title for cells that are not editable (grey).

List applets are completely unusable for blind users when column and data announcement information is not consistent. Users cannot distinguish data in the cell from the column label information.

Additionally as a user is tabbing across a list, JAWS only announces sometimes that the field is a link.   This always occurs if a field is an MVG as well as a link.  However it occurs intermittently on other fields as well.
