Re: [EXTERNAL] Google Lighthouse with a screen reader?

If I were going down the continuous integration route, I'd probably use a headless browser and automate a lot of what we do. But right now all I want to do is to run Lighthouse over a single-page application in its various states and see how it performs. If Lighthouse is accessible, it isnt' obviously so.

Unless you are looking to write code to integrate Google Lighthouse into a continuous integration system, it sounds like you either access Google Lighthouse from Chrome DevTools or the commandline.

If you find Chrome DevTools accessible enough, then you don't need to install Node to use the features. If you prefer to use the command line, you definitely will need to install Node.

I use a screen reader, but it has been a couple months since I tried working with the Chrome DevTools. If I recall correctly, I think I found some things seemed accessible while others weren't. I think I was able to access the audit tab and review the accessibility information provided there.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [WebAIM] Google Lighthouse with a screenreader?

Hi all,

Is it possible to use Google Lighthouse with a screenreader without installing NodeJS? I'll do that if I have to, but it's an extra step and I'm lazy.
