Screen Reader Testing

Difficulty: Advanced


  • Validation

Evaluating the accessibility of a web site in a screen reader can provide an interesting and accurate representation of true accessibility. Screen readers are very complex software and can be difficult to learn and use. Learning enough to simply listen to a web page and navigate through a web page can be sufficient to identify accessibility issues. Tutorials are available for using JAWS and NVDA for web accessibility evaluation. To ensure that your experience is accurate, turn off your monitor and don’t use a mouse.
