Day 76: Screen Reader Keystroke Comparisons, Part 2

Continued work from Screen Reader Keystroke Comparisons, Part 1. Tomorrow I hope to dive into one of the other screen readers that I’m less familiar with (either Windows Eyes or Orca).

Thing I accomplished

  • Added VoiceOver (Mac), VoiceOver (iOS), and Talkback keystrokes/gestures to my (offline) comparisons spreadsheet.

What I learned today

  • For VoiceOver on Mac, Control + Option + Command + X navigates to the next list on a page.
  • Noticed for the first time, the Talkback cheatsheet for Android [PDF] devices recommends using the Firefox browser. I assumed Chrome or the proprietary browser on the device.
  • It’s kind of a nerdy fun to actually see the keystroke and gesture differences and similarities next to each other, which is helping me differentiate what works on what device.
