accessibility issue for visually impaired: inaccessible menu management

Description

this is a request for the final wp release: as you did in the widget panel, please provide accessibility support also in the menu management, as for a blind person it's impossible to create a menu (especially the view all/add to menu) buttons located on the create menu page, that are not recognized by assistive technologies as buttons: in widgets panel, there is on screen settings -> enable accessibility mode, i did not notice anything like that, on menus manager. thanks.

Could you be using an older version of trunk? The current one has the "add to menu" as input submit buttons, whereas the previous had that text as links.

Replying to filosofo:

This is my first comment on trac. I am using the latest nightly build of WP 3.0 Beta1 and using Jaws for Windows V. 9.0. I went to the menus area and had a quick play and everything works as Filosofo suggests.

Upgrading to the most recent version of trunk should solve accessibility concerns. I'm going to call this fixed.
