A note on disabled buttons: it's not uncommon that they cannot be read out by screen readers or accessed by speech-recognition software like Dragon, because being disabled means no user interaction allowed. Similarly I found I can't right-click on these elements in order to inspect them in the browser debugger; I click a sibling and navigate my way to the disabled element, if I want to inspect it.
