Hi

When using the JAWS screen reading software drop down menus are not read. Is there any way to make JAWS read each menu item when the drop down button is pressed? I know that javascript is used to display the div that contains the menu items, I have a feeling this is the problem.

Thanks

Antony

Hi Antony,

You can use the following approach to make it visible for the reader:

<style type="text/css">
    .rtbSlide
    {
        display: block !important;
        position: absolute;
        left: -999px;
    }
</style>

This is similar to the suggestion in this blog post for RadMenu:

I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,
