Full page title is spoken with VoiceOver for OS X and iOS even if the title is cut off visually.

> Hi All  I noticed that JAWS 13 and NVDA 2014.1 on IE 8 will voice the page title until 95 characters. This is what a sighted user would see as well. My understanding is that although the page title is not visible in later versions of IE, a screen reader would still voice it. An example follows where a lengthy page title is cut off in IE8: http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20140311/G94  Can someone confirm if this page title is partially spoken with other screen reader / browser combinations?
