      Description

      JAWS users cannot reorder the assignments utilizing screen reading software. Other screen reading software are not provided with information on where they are moving the selected item.

      Recommended remediation:

      Modify the code to follow http://fluidproject.org/releases/1.4/demos/reorderer/listReorderer/demo.html because this implementation provides certain screen reading software with list position information when moving an assignment (e.g., move from 1 of 6 to 2 of 6).

      An accessible alternative is needed for uses of JAWS screen reading software. A link can be provided to instructions, an unordered list which contains a select element for each item and a submit button. This set of form controls along the with the required coding will allow screen reader users to select a new position for one or multiple items without requiring a complicated set of key strokes.
