What you see is what I get

Léonie Watson Director and co-founder Tetralogical

Ever wondered how screen readers do what they do? Ever wondered what screen readers actually do come to think of it?

Who uses them? What do they sound like? Where do they get their information from? What is it with screen readers and punctuation? And what exactly does my code have to do with it anyway?

Find out all this and more in What You See Is What I Get - one screen reader user's explanation of how it really works.
