Re: Screen reader accessible Web Testing Tools

For browsers like Firefox and Chrome, you will want to use the built-in DevTools rather than something like Firebug. However, as a screen reader user, you will want to invest time in reading the available documentation as well as spend time getting use to how the tools work with a screen reader.

Hi Ajeesh,
Most of the audit tools these days are accessible. aXe by Deque both Chrome and Firefox plugins are accessible with screen reader. Web AIM's wave http://wave.webaim.org is also screen reader friendly. The PTGs Chrome extension for accessibility audit is also accessibility friendly.
Firebug add on for firefox was helpful to debug and see the results instantly in the past, not sure if it is still available on Mozilla Addons page.

Let me know if you need any further information.
