Hello my fellow AT enthusiasts.

Does anyone have any thoughts/feedback on the accessibility of JAWS with Iframes? We are currently using them for our student login on our front facing main page and I'm having a hard time getting JAWS to play well. JAWS isn't picking up focus once I click on the login link, if I force the cursor into the login Iframe, JAWS isn't reading any of the form fields of links properly (i.e. Forgot your password link) either.

I'm thinking it just isn't properly coded, but web development is a little beyond my reach. The folks who are developing this have asked me to ask you.

Hopefully my explanation made sense! Any thoughts are welcomed.
