Re: auto detecting screen reader

Hi Brian,


It rather depends on whether those so-called accessibility options are well implemented. Often on websites they are not. They just chuck everything at ARIA as alerts, and everything gets read out.


All the best

It's a one-time accept or decline (unless you constantly delete site cookies).

For the love of heaven, when a site has additional accessibility options why would you NOT want to know about them?  These detections occur in other things, too, such as Adobe Reader DC, which will ask you whether you want to set up things with the Accessibility Wizard (also one time) and, believe me, in that context you absolutely do want to.

It is well to open one's mind but only as a preliminary to closing it . . . for the supreme act of judgment and selection.
