RE: testing our survey with a screen reader

Hi Lisa,
Are you asking they be tested from a “meet the standard” standpoint or from a usability with assistive technology standpoint? Both?
If about “meet the standard” I could possibly test next week if helpful.
It may be helpful to also ask members of the W3C work that use screen readers every day to test too.

Hi Folks

I was trying to test our survey on the coga research documents<>  with a screen reader and I found the tables, even when they were one row, really hard to use. Not impossible, but with my screen off it was too hard (at least for me).
Is that because I am not used to the screen reader? I have not done testing for a while, so my skills are rusty.
Do we have any screen reader users who can test it, or is this a know issue?
If they are really complex we can redo the questions as checklists. (Maybe we should just do that)

All the best
