Re: NVDA reads different title than what's in the html

The F12 Developer tools in IE also allow you to do this. Chrome and Opera have their corresponding sets, too.

Best of all, these tools let you edit the generated DOM and test the result, so when you dive in to your code you will know what you need to make it do (or stop doing).
