Re: Read only Inputs and screen readers

Depends on whether they are in a table or just stand alone. If in a table you can use table reading commands to read, if however, it is stand alone text, you would need to use the arrow keys to find and read it. It is always more of a challenge if there is no HTML headings or some other way of at least getting to the right area of the read only text.
