Re: Differences Between Testing With JAWS And NVDA

When I test I usually test with NVDA, JAWS, and Voiceover on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.

The matrix of work exposes errors in the user agent (the browser) and/or the assistive technology or the code itself.

It's a lot of work but it is really helpful to test with detail so we can determine where the error is actually coming from.

Keep up the great work!

Subject: [WebAIM] Differences Between Testing With JAWS And NVDA

I usually do accessibility testing with NVDA. For those of you who test with JAWS, what differences do you notice when comparing the results between the two screen readers and what JAWS settings do you change from the defaults?
