Intro to Cross Screen Reader Testing

Weston Thayer Founder Assistiv Labs

There’s a wide variety of screen readers available today — NVDA, JAWS, VoiceOver, Narrator, and TalkBack to name a few. Much like web browsers, each has its own strengths, weaknesses, and unique quirks.

In this talk, we’ll dive into why testing with screen readers is important, the major differences between them, and strategies you can use to prioritize and debug screen reader issues that surface in your accessibility work.
