Quick Tip: Screen Reader Testing

Using any screen reader for the first time can be a confusing and discouraging experience. Using an audio interface is almost always a little disorienting for sighted users. But with a bit of effort and experience, screen reader testing becomes easier and more efficient. Screen reader testing is best conducted using the default or minimally customized settings and limited navigation techniques. This allows the basic accessibility of the page to be analyzed without relying on strategies employed by screen reader power users. WebAIM has articles on getting started with JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver.
