Being the accessibility “cop” is a role I’ve seemed to take on, I’ll add one comment and question about the “hack”.

Even if a TOC is initially hidden, screen readers WILL read the TOC and the status of each page (xyz completed, abs not started, etc.). I’m still working on a solution to this, but the way the implementation for the TOC is done, it’s a struggle.

The comment/question is about using “this.href=”javascript:void(null)””. A screen reader will still see and announce the href text (this happens on every button if you preview in browser, by the way). I’m guessing it would be easy to replace the above text with “Page not available” or something that might be more palatable for users with screen readers.
