Accessibility and tabbing through a survey

Hi, I've created a survey and I'm testing it with NVDA screen reader.

Weird thing is, when I tab through my survey, tab skips the question text in every case (in fact, it also skips the welcome text). Tab takes me to each answer field, and reads those, but all other text is skipped.

I'm using the LS Default template with no customizations. I tried installing and using the moreAccessibility plugin -- but I'm not clear that it is compatible with the version of LS, and if it is, it doesn't seem to resolve my issue.

I'm using version 2.58.0+170104

Any suggestions?

Hi moreAccessibility are not compatible with LimeSurvey 2.5X, you're right : i must put a warning in README.

Currently : develop version use "aria-labelleddby" [*] for question text. Think a plugin can add the aria-describedby for 'help part'.

Welcome text are not part of the form : then can not be in aria-(labelledby|describedby).
