Quick Tip: Embracing Screen Reader Differences

When testing for accessibility issues in screen readers, testers can sometimes get hung up on how different screen reader software can read, present, or navigate the same content in different ways.

Instead of worrying about creating an identical experience in different assistive technologies, we should strive to create an accessible experience that can be adapted by the end user.
