Subject: [Athen] JAWS and IFRAME

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

Hopefully my explanation made sense! Any thoughts are welcomed.
