    Filemaker 12 Accessibility Inspector tags don't work on Instant Web Publishing

      Summary

      Filemaker 12 Accessibility Inspector tags don't work on Instant Web Publishing

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      Windows Server 2008

      Description of the issue

      I have a database I want to publish to the web, but I also want it to be accessible to screen readers.  Filemaker 12 has a great new feature in its Accessibility Inspector, but the tags don't work with Instant Web Publishing.

      Is there a way to make these tags work, or does it only work in Filemaker Pro.  If only Filemaker Pro, isn't that shortsighted?  The place we really need accessibility is in our web publishing.  Why give the option for alt tags if it doesn't translate to IWP?

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Tag fields in any database and publish to Instant Web Publishing

      Expected result

      When using a screen reader, the title and help will be read by the screen reader

      Actual result

      The screen reader just says "Edit text" on any field you enter.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Workaround

      I switched from FM11 to FM 12 and 12 Server Advanced
