I migrated this question to SuperUser on the advice in an answer to the OP: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/65161111/how-does-a-web-accessibility-screenreader-like-chromevox-read-paragraphs/65161406#65161406
If this is not the correct place to post, please advise. The OP is below:
I am testing a site for accessibility using ChromeVOX and I notice that the
tag content does not get read. When I tab through the main content, ChromeVOX simply skips over the
and reads the <h#> tags, and links.
I have watched the video: https://youtu.be/OUDV1gqs9GA?t=2748 and at this section, the narrator skips to the first and then mentions a hotkey that will just let the screenreader continue to read all the text. However, narrator does not mention what that hotkey is.
I have looked at the ChromeVOX keyboard shortcuts, but I cannot find that one:
Also, here is a link to a site to see how screen-readers work:
When I navigate that site with ChromeVOX, it also does not read anything except for the tag.
So, what is the keyboard shortcut or method to read the content in the
tags or role="main" tag? Is there an aria tag that would include those paragraphs? As far as I can see, this behaviour is common across all sites.
