for speech this could enable firevox to read the title contents under user control

Accessibility regarding speech would be considerably enhanced for non-readers who use a mouse.

current working example demonstrating this methodology, in SVG and html include:
http://www.peepo.co.uk & http://www.askmencap.info/mnis_main.swf

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install firevox
2.mouseover link
3.click on tooltip
4.listen to text of title contents being spoken
Depends on: 273704
Is this a bug in the Fire Vox extension? If so please close the bug and report it directly to Charles.
Aaron, firevox is only included as an example.

this bug depends on 273704, and is an enhancement, event-handler might be a better description than anchor for the summary.

the issue is to give the mouse user independent time control on when text is read. tabbing has a linear quality that mouse behaviour has not, so the approach needs to be different.

There is an internal inconsistency, in that having raised a tooltip, how does one click on it? however the examples should clarify this to some extent. probably best to see http://www.peepo.co.uk suing asv3 in os x.

please reconsider,if the meaning is still not clear, let me know

Please add 
1. Actual result
2. Expected result

should it be possible to focus on tooltips?
eg they could for instance contain a link.
currently it isn't possible using the mouse.

however the examples given do demonstrate similar usage.

keyboard users can navigate to contents of tooltips, giving focus for readers, for instance. 

but mouse users currently cannot.

> but mouse users currently cannot.

In chrome, not yet, it seems.
In content, it is possible for a page writer to produce "selectable" or "clickable" tooltips: for instance, hover your mouse over any link (to another page) on the Dutch (nl. ) or French (fr. ) Wikipedias but not the English one.
