Re: ChromeVox comparison to JAWS or VoiceOver

In the past, some of our clients have assumed that testing for web
accessibility using ChromeVox means that their features are screen reader
accessible in general, which is not actually true in many cases. So if the
next logical question to this thread is 'can I test for accessibility using
ChromeVox', the answer is yes, but it doesn't mean much unless you also test
the same thing using JAWS and NVDA in IE and FF as well.
