Just to be clear (because re-reading it, I could see it being mis-read),
my point was that, while the WebAIM survey clearly showed the usefulness
of using headings, what wasn't shown was how people accessed those
headings. Would be interesting to know. My own observation shows it to be
exactly as Jared described, but I also recognize that the screenreader
users I know are all power users. I'm not sure how they compare to
"normal" users.
