Google Chrome Screen Reader Support update
Refer to Google Chrome accessibility update
Following last weeks post about Google Chrome accessibility which was prompted by The Google Chrome Screen Reader Accessibility Petition created by Alex Hiironen, new information about Google Chrome screen reader support has been added to the Google Chrome (Chromium) wiki:
Supported Screen ReadersThe latest versions of these screen readers have partial support for Chrome now:
These screen readers do not yet recognize Chrome’s non-focusable web content (links, form fields and other focusable content is spoken as expected), so you will be unable to enter “browse mode”:We hope to work with all screen reader developers to resolve any issues so that they can enable full support for Chrome.The list above is not a comprehensive list of all screen readers, but in the interest of prioritizing support for the greatest number of users, we believe that supporting the screen readers above will have the greatest impact. If external developers are interested in helping to add support for additional screen readers, we would welcome the help.For more detailed information about the technical design and current status, see the Accessibility Design Document.
