Re: Reading epub books with NVDA
All,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
EPub is HTML. If the reader shows the content as plain text, then it fails as a EPub reader. As you are loosing all the HTMl mark-up structure and other ability of jumping through the books, ETC. Some readers I have use their own TTS engine which I classify this as a failure because you cannot navigate by links, buttons, etc. If there is one that does this, I am very interested in looking at. Personally, for a screen reader this is a duplicate functionality.
The browser option some are not accessible because you cannot find the button to open the Epub or the focus is not placed into the Epub book. Firefox version has this issue. Edge seems to work okay with NVDA, but have not tested in depth.
IF any stand-only EPub readers retain the HTMl structures and also can read Digitally secured versions. I am very interested in checking out with NVDA.

Try Chrome with the Readium extension. I haven't used it recently, but it seems to be fairly accessible, and there are accessibility specialists working on it.
