I posted three to the list last week.  I have included them again below.

We ran into a page on the desktop where a left quote was used on an attribute on the HTML element along with a matching straight quote.  A desktop assistive technology couldn't see the page content correctly.   The page looked fine.

On Android we ran into an issue with TalkBack where a combo box was completely invisible in Firefox.  Turns out the first item in the option list had a blank value and no label attribute.  Blank values must have a label attribute to validate.  Adding the label attribute solved the issue.

Some valid nested structures even cause screen reader issues such as when explicit labels contain links -- some AT still have issues with that but it's gotten better.

If that’s the case, then I’ve no issue with it. 

The only issues in the area of parsing I’ve come across recently affected most people (not just AT users), and were often caught in QA as a matter of course. 

I would be interested if anyone has examples… something that affects AT but isn’t a problem in just a browser.

Cheers,
