    I have a dozen or so (hierarchical) rows in a treelist that contains five columns.  However, when I run JAWS, I see the grid caption and 5 x 1 (which I assume to relate to the five columns and the header row).  I also see that this is the case when I run it agains the treelist demo ( -- Except that I see the grid information followed by 6 x 1 (there are six columns in the demo treelist).

    Is this the correct behavior of the treelist with JAWS or is there something I'm missing (and that the demo is missing)?

    Hello Matt,

    The TreeList scrollable property makes it break the header rows apart from the data rows. To have a single table in the TreeList, so that JAWS can read it completely, set scrollable: false to the TreeList, as shown in this Dojo snippet.
