<time> vs <abbr> vs <span>

I'm wondering if the Accessibility community has comments regarding the usage of <time> elements in HTML. My basic testing revealed that screen readers don't seem to read them differently compared with <span> elements, but I may have missed a case or two.

Is there movement in the AT space towards relying on semantic elements like <time>?
