ISSUE-20: JAWS and NVDA now read the link text AND the title contents by default

JAWS and NVDA now read the link text AND the title contents by default

State:
OPEN
Product:
HTML & ARIA Techniques TF
Raised by:
David MacDonald
Opened on:
2014-05-23
Description:
H33 user agent notes says "Current user agents and assistive technology provide no feedback to the user when links have title attribute content available."

Testing with both JAWs and NVDA seem to provide title fine now in addition to link text, even though the accessible name calculation says it should be either/or... I think this line can be deleted

Yes James, you are right. That is what is happening. So I think we can delete that line in H33 now.
