Accessibility Testing with Screen Readers
Screen readers are software programs that allow blind or visually impaired users to read the text that is displayed on the computer screen with a speech synthesizer. The user sends commands by pressing different combinations of keys on the computer keyboard to instruct the speech synthesizer what to say and to speak automatically when changes occur on the computer screen.
Without proper code, a screen reader will not be able to navigate digital content, words, elements and links would be muddled which would result in a frustrating and confusing experience for the user.
Testing accessibility with a screen reader provides greater insight into understanding the accessibility barriers similar to how screen reader users experience the content.
This Accessibility training is intended for digital accessibility testers to guide them on how to use screen readers to identify and fix accessibility loopholes in digital content.
