David, thanks! I had misinterpreted the implications. Of course, the stats
refer to the number of tasks accomplished and not the necessitated time to
fulfill a task. Recently, I was reading about the reading efficiency of
partially sighted in comparison to Braille readers, wherby Braille readers
were substantially faster. Somehor that was still sticking in my mind.

not unless the others are typos too. <grin>

I actually find the screen reader one acceedingly low considering I am a
screen reader user myself and get about 80 percent.  I'd have to look at
their study but I am not inclined to pay that high a price for it.

One thing that is needed here though is to look at the relative
relationships.  a screen reader user needs to become familiar with
things in ways that a controll does not so that should have been taken
into account.  Now, if there are accessibility issues that is a
different thing.  Also, I don't think 104 constitutes a good sample
unless they are well distributed across technical capability and other

In the NNG report the control group is quoted to have needed
substantially longer than screen reader/screen magnifier users::

>      * Task completion rate: Screen reader users were able to complete
>        the tasks given to them 12.5% of the time; screen magnifier
>        21.4% of the time; control group 78% of the time.

While first reading, I read 7.8% for the control group, which would
correspond to my experiences. Could the 78% be a typo or scanning error?
