Using JAWS 15 with Internet Explorer 11 and Mozilla Firefox 28, the entire page
title is read out. However, it is wrapped around on to two lines, with 158
characters on the first line. The title appears as follows:

 

G94: Providing short text alternative for non-text content that serves the same
purpose and presents the same information as the non-text content | Techniques

for WCAG 2.0

Subject: Cut off limit of a page title

 

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?
