Screen Reader Users - What Bothers You Most?

The recently announced WaSP Accessibility Task Force (ATF) needs your help - if you are a screen reader user, be that an every-day user or someone who uses the tool for testing purposes, we want to hear from you.

  • What are your biggest frustrations where support for XHTML/HTML is concerned?
  • What are the biggest problems with your screen reader software’s support for HTML elements that it really should be able to cope with?
  • What do you find most difficult when listening to a web page which could be improved by basic HTML support?

Please feed your comments using the feedback form and be sure to make clear the following:

  • What software and version you are using
  • Describe the problem
  • Provide a live URL for an example of how the screen reader gets it wrong

I know that other people on the WaSP ATF are also asking for feedback of this nature. It will be collated and then used when WaSP approaches the screen reader vendors - this is your chance to have your say. With some hope, and with enough weight of evidence, perhaps the people making the software might pay attention.
