Alan,

Thanks for the tips and the NVDA testing doc. I'm going to go through it tomorrow.

Greg,
 
For the best experience with NVDA Speech Viewer you need to change some default settings to say the command keys which will show up in the speech viewer and turn off audio indication of browse mode which will then say “browse mode” or “focus mode” rather then hear a bell or click sound.
 
Check out my attached doc on using NVDA for testing. I have used it to train hundreds of testers.
It has a lot of helpful tips and tricks.
 
It does not tell you how to use NVDA if you are relying upon it for the web, it tells you how to use it to test your pages for screen reader users.

Isaiah, Thanks for sharing the Speech Viewer feature in NVDA. I didn't know about that and it will be very helpful for me.

NVDA offers a great feature called Speech Viewer which allows you to visually see what the screen reader is saying. Does JAWS have an equivalent to this? Through a google search, I found a thread from 2013 that suggested using JAWS Braille viewer. It looked promising but it only displays the first 40 characters of what is being read.
 
I am a user experience (UX) researcher and I’m conducting some accessibility testing on our site with real users. It would be great if I could read and save everything that the screen reader is saying. This will help me analyze what users did so that I can make recommendations to our creative teams on things they can change in order to make users’ experiences more delightful.
 
Thanks!
