I have developed a self-quiz for a local university that needs to be 508 compliant. For doing some research I have found that screen readers need to have a tabable program so that the user can read what the component displays. My problem is with the listbox component, there doesn't seem to be a tabIndex property and I am not sure if the listbox component can be extended to incorporate this functionality (if it can I am not comfortable doing it yet).

I think I might be able to use the setScrollPosition() method to select different items in the listbox but am unsure as to whether or not this would work when tabing through the tabIndex. Does anyone have any ideas about how to make this work?? Any help or advise is much appreciated.
