Re: ARIA Grid support

Hi Don,

The focus management is based on the content and whether the grid is
used to convey just the tabular data for screen readers or it is an
interactive grid.
Please see ARIA Authoring guide recommendations for Grid keyboard
interactions below 3.11 Grids : Interactive Tabular Data and Layout

Thanks & Regards,

So where does the focus need to land? Are you talking about a JAVA script to
control the focus?

Hi Don,

I am not sure of the FF 56 and above. However JAWS supports ARIA Grid
structure in IE 11 and FF 52.9.0.
To have the proper user experience for navigating with arrow keys the focus
need to be managed with the scripting.
The arrrow key navigation works properly only when JAWS is on forms mode not
on forms mode off.

Thanks & Regards,
Mohith B. P.

Well, all my testing has failed. JAWS seems to think the Grid is a
table, however, there is only one cell. Up and down arrows by
themselves, will not read at all correctly.

We are using ARIA grids in many of our applications, does JAWS
officially support this especially in Firefox 56 and above.
