infrastructure in early 2020?

Just curious. Here's what I test with:
Safari on IOS, and OSX
NVDA with Firefox and Chrome
JAWS with Firefox, Chrome, and Edge

The best combination depends on several factors - including especially your
target audience and what capacity you have for testing. Maybe your
combination is right for you.

Lots of folks seem to test with two or three of the following combinations:
JAWS/Internet Explorer
