Description

Hi, I encounted a trouble thing with voice over on Chrome Firefox and Safari.
I'm not blind, I just wanted to see how the new Voice over worked.
It reads mostly everything exept (for now) posts, I found that it reads the header link but not the_content().

And not to be picky but should Voice over really read the slider?
I'm new to this report error/bug things so be "gently" with me haha.

Theme I tried on was twentyfifteen
I was trying this out on Linux mint 17 also but cant find a good screen reader that can read web also.. Any one have sugegestion link it here?

Have you tried different themes to see if it works? Like Twenty Fourteen.

Okay this is some things I found about the older themes.. mine you that this test was on a clean wordpress installation and these themes has some issues:

TwentyEleven and TwentyTwelve dont show the (I insert a picture dont know the name of that field) "jump to..." button..

And for all themes.. my voice over wont read the comment section also.. just how many have comment so far.

Replying to tdserviceco:

"Skip links" :)

Can confirm Twenty Eleven 2.1 and Twenty Twelve 1.7 don't show the "Skip to content" link correctly when focused. You can see the correct behavior in the previous themes versions. The screen-reader-text CSS class was updated in all bundled themes. The :focus rule should be updated accordingly, for example resetting the width and height to auto.

Hi @tdserviceco, on GNU/Linux you can try the Orca screen reader, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_screen_readers

Twenty Eleven and Twenty Twelve fixed the "skip links" in their latest versions. Please consider screen readers don't work the same with all browsers. For example, NVDA is highly optimized for Firefox and won't give the same excellent results when used with Chrome. In the same way, VoiceOver works better with Safari. It's entirely possible that using a non-optimal browser/screen reader combination some section of a web page won't be read out correctly but this has nothing to do with the web page itself. Not a browser or screen reader fault as well, it's all about using the best combination.
We've discussed a bit this ticket in the last accessibility team chat on Slack and we're not aware of any breaking accessibility issue in Twenty Fifteen. Going to close this ticket, but please do open new tickets if you encounter specific accessibility issues.
