Hi,

Several of my DeafBlind friends who use JAWS, are not having problems using
the MS Word format that contain heading 1, heading 2 and so on. Nor there
is any problems using h1, h2 and so on.

However they despise any MS Word that has tables in it which include the MS
Word document format in html or as a regular document. They cannot read the
contents in the tables.

I'm not sure which version of JAWS they are using. Hope this helps.

Subject: [WebAIM] Heading 1 vs H1, etc.

A client's web team is telling document specialists to use HTML tags H1, H2,
P, etc. instead of Heading 1, Heading 2, Normal in their MS Word docs, which
then travel to both InDesign and directly to the web.



Web team's reasoning: some screen readers recognize only HTML tags.



Q: Is the web team referring to older screen readers?

Q: Is this a valid strategy to take? If not, what would be?

Q: Do you know of any materials & resources about using style/tag names
across different applications that I can pass along to my client?
