I am working with Extjs 4.2 , i need to make extjs tree panel as accessible i.e screen reader should read each and every node's role and state. ?
i have gone through the below link but it is in extjs 4.3 .
i (http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/ext-3.4.0/examples/tree/aria-tree.html)n the above link the tree will be rendered like unordered list in html viewer.but in extjs 4.2 , the tree will be rendered as div and tables.
So my problem is , how to add ARIA properties to tree panel.?
and how to achieve same using extjs 4.2??

You will need to use Sencha Cmd to provide this support. Please see the following guide to use the theme needed to support ARIA


Have you done this and the tree is not working?

Thanks for your quick respone scort,

I have followed the same link to create accessibility supported application using sencha build..but JAWS Reader is not reading the Child nodes state and role ARIA Properties?

I just found a bug report that this will be addressed in Ext5 due to lack of a navigation model. (no public release date)
