Screen Reader Reliability Testing


This page demonstrates the use of the img element with the src attribute, the alt attribute, and the title attribute specified. This page should be accessible. However, the results may depend on screen reader settings unless both the alt attribute and the title attribute are set to the same value.

For example, with JAWS the results depend on the value of the GraphicRenderingOption option in the HTML section of the JAWS configuration file Default.jcf.
