Hmmm, the way this list read was very confusing because it did not maintain the HTML code. This is quite different from what I received in my original message. Interesting.

Hi Karen,

Jaws read the list fine, but, I am finding the list a bit confusing as well. Why are the last two items in the list, "Passwork/Email and Grades" separated from the first 3 items? Do they belong to "Section 1_2"? Not being able to "see" the list does make it a little hard to understand.

Hi Colleagues,
In working with a screen reader user, she expressed confusion about a sub-list. JAWS just read "list of 5 items" but before it reached the end of those 5 items, it read "list of 1 item". She thought something was wrong because it hadn't read all of the five items. Is there a better way to mark this up so it's obvious the list of 1 item is a sub-list?
I asked if she could tell it was a sub-list because it hadn't reached the end of the 5 items yet, but she was more inclined to not believe the "list of 5 items" was correct.
and Here's the list:

- Main Menu
- Courses
- Homework Sets
- Section 1_2
- Passwork/Email
- Grades
