Description Joanmarie Diggs (irc: joanie) 2009-05-10 13:38:35 PDT
Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the (to be) attached test case.

2. Examine the accessible hierarchy in Accerciser.

Expected results: There would be a single accessible object for the text "This is bold text." (The boldness of the word "bold" would be exposed to ATs as a text attribute. See bug 25528.)

Actual results: There are three accessibles ("This is ", "bold", and " text.")

Xan: Is this representation fundamental to WebKit, or is it a a11y-specific rendering? If the former, let's drop the priority of this bug and I'll see what I can do to work around it in Orca. Otherwise, it would be good for this text to be exposed in a fashion consistent with what we get from other apps. Thanks!
