Steps to reproduce: 1. Search for a business at 411.com (e.g. Dominos Pizza in Huntsville, Alabama). 2. Launch Accerciser and turn event monitoring on. 3. On the search results page, click on one of the "phone" links/buttons to show the phone number. At this point a couple of things happen to the "phone" link: 1. The accessible text associated with the "phone" link is removed as evidenced by text.characterCount == 0 and text.getText(0, -1) == "" 2. The states change. In particular the following states are removed: FOCUSABLE, SHOWING, SENSITIVE, VISIBLE, (also HORIZONTAL and OPAQUE but these are not as significant). There are no text-changed:delete events or state-changed events to announce these changes in the phone link.
I think you're holding onto an old link object that is no longer there. Is there no children-changed event saying that it goes away? Is it now DEFUNCT? I think a new text object is being created in its place. Not sure yet what the JS is doing though.
Nevermind, you're right.
Joanie, I don't know where the "phone" links/buttons are. Can you give me a screenshot or something?
Oh shoot, they changed that site. That will teach me not to generate a test document. :-( Let me see if I can come up with something similar.
Yes, I can't work on this until we have a new testcase.
If it's too hard to find a new real example on the web, then perhaps this shouldn't be considered urgent anyway?
Please re-block fox3access and re-add "orca:urgent" if a new real-world test case becomes available.
Since no one has objected.... :-) Closing as WORKSFORME since all attempts at producing a test case resulted in the correct events being generated.
