Using the Voiceover screen reader to test for accessibility

Using the Voiceover screen reader to test for accessibility

9:39
Did you know every Mac comes with a fantastic screen reader built-in? Learn the basics for operating Voiceover with Safari, including common key commands, the web rotor, and the help menu. We'll also set up keyboard tabbing in Safari and OSX's System Preferences, two requirements for accessibility testing that occasionally trip up users. In a future lesson, we'll compare Voiceover to Windows screen readers, since they work quite differently. #### Resources - Apple Voiceover commands and gestures: https://www.apple.com/voiceover/info/guide/_1131.html - WebAIM Voiceover Tutorial: http://webaim.org/articles/voiceover/
