Re: Screen Reader tests after code validation


From: Wayne Dick

My philosophy is this:

If a page passes a good validation (say WCAG 2.0
Level AA) where manual evaluation as needed is
done then the developer is done. If a screen
reader cannot read it you should probably contact
the manufacturer of the screen reader. You have a
real bug to report. Don't code around it, your
fix may harm another disability group, and the
screen reader maker will not discover their bug.
