Is generated content reliably read by screen readers today?

In 2013, there was a discussion here that stated that some browser /
Screenreader combinations did not reliably expose CSS-generated content
(via ::before). In the UA / SR combinations I have tried now, 5 years
later, CSS-generated text content was exposed and read. While I reckon
it is still not a recommended practice to use generated content on all
but decorative or supplemental information - is there still a case for
calling out such practice as WCAG failure?


Best, Detlev
