Using TSVN with screen readers for visually impaired users.

All,
 
One of my users is blind and users a screen reader. He has raised the
following concern:
 
The context menu items presented by TSVN are not making their captions
available to adaptive technology when they are selected. The text is
being written to the screen and is available in the OSM (off-screen
model), but this is an unreliable and impractical mechanism for screen
reader users. IN addition, some seemingly meaningless information is
being presented when the items are selected with the keyboard, such as
the letter "P" followed by a number of question marks and another letter
or two. These letters appear unrelated to the menu item itself.
 
Context menus that possess submenus, however, are presenting their
captions correctly.
 
The screen reader I am currently using is called JAWS for Windows
version 7.0.
 
 
Cheers,
 
Rob Brentnall
