    Good interviews, but I had to comment because of the joke, it was hilarious, but I wanted kill Paul. Why so many interruptions?

    Hi,

    Excellent show with two great interviews about important topics! The latter made think about ASP.NET websites and the screen reader form mode.

    It seems that depending of the way you do ASP.NET development (different frameworks and stuff) everything within the website’s BODY tag could be wrapped within a FORM tag. This could then cause a screen reader to go into the forms mode and the user could not access the contents before quitting the form mode.

    If I remember correctly Headscape does ASP.NET development so my question is do you happen to know whether this is a real issue or not? Does screen readers go into the forms mode automatically when they encounter this mandatory ASP.NET FORM tag?

    I did a quick (lazy if you will :-) ) search about the subject but didn’t come up anything conclusive so far. See http://www.webaim.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=85 for example.

    Is there something more to coding accessible HTML forms besides knowing how the screen reader forms mode works and how to use the FIELDSET, LEGEND and LABEL (for – id connections) elements correctly? Although this podcast is not focused on front-end coding I’d like to hear more about these topics in the show.

    Keep up the good work!

    Is it just me or is this podcast messed up? It keeps bouncing between two different audios…

    Hi Josh, I am having the same issue. The content does appear to be overlapped. Sounds like an interesting podcast – perhaps they will upload it again and I can listen to it later.
