Re: Browser and Screen Reader Combination

Just remember that the survey is voluntary and not a distributed population
set. So the "most popular" combinations of screen readers and browsers
might end up being the most popular testing environments because the survey
might have been filled out by mostly accessibility testers (for example).
If you wanted a true "most popular" result based on actual screen reader
users (and not testers), the survey would have to be limited to that

It's still a great survey but you have to be careful with the results.

You'll notice in the results that NVDA seems to be on par with JAWS but I
suspect that's because more and more accessibility testers fill out the
survey and most testers use both screen readers.
