Glossaries and accessibility

What's the best practice advice for ensuring glossary terms within a page are accessible to those using assistive technology? When I add a glossary term to a word, the screen reader will read the word as a link and then you can use the keyboard to open that glossary text box. However, this method doesn't recognise the glossary link when using the screen reader to search the hierarchy of the page. I've also tried adding a lightbox action to a word as a glossary pop-up. This is recognised by the screen reader on the hierarchy, but I realise this won't then feature in any course glossaries.

Any thoughts?

This is being fixed in an upcoming release, along with great number of other accessibility and WCAG-related improvements. That release shouldn't be too far in the future, it's working its way through QA currently.
