This works with at least JAWS 6 and above.

A quick way to reveal your heading structure in word without the need of
a screen reader is to auto generate a table of contents through MS Word.
You can undo after you look at the structure if you do not want the
table of contents included in the final document.

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.

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?
