Hi SIri

What a really good question!  I know that JAWS prefers IE and NVDA prefers FireFox but it never occurred to me to ask why.

I did some very limited Google-research and found information on the Accessibility Tree at http://whatsock.com/training/.  I’ve only scanned it for an answer at the moment but I’ll go back and read this properly later.  Chapter 4 seems to hold a clue in your search for a definitive answer.

If you follow-up on Marc’s advice about talking to Marco Zehe, please share your findings because now you’ve got me wondering.

Hope this helps …

Regards

I have a question about why NVDA in FF browser is recommend even though Chrome and FF uses same API.  As per WEBAIM screen reader usage survey shows NVDA with FF is used more.



Also can you please tell which browser builds better accessibility tree?







Thanks,

Siri
