And screen reader users are only one group of people for whom you
are building accessibility. Screenreader-compliant pages do not
always work for keyboard only and voice only users, for example.

I am a strong, strong proponent of real-life testing. But I
second the opinion of everyone else here, that testing with only
JAWS can lead you to believe that you have solved all your
problems if your pages work with JAWS.
