GSOC 2015 work on Expert Configuration is looking good no delays when a11y support is active (NVDA), but search functions are broken.

search is working great now...

A sidebar issue--that probably needs a new bug:

The Table -> Row(s) and its columns only expose the "Preference Name" to a11y.

Other columns of each row, e.g. "Property", "Type" and "Value" of the table (or of search results) are not exposed--and we don't seem to have a means of advancing column to column when reviewing each row. Even with a row selected, the Edit function does not announce the name of the Property being edited.

Not sure what can be done with the structure to expose the rest of the columns, but things already are much better with a11y active than it had been.
