NVDA Smoke Test


Be sure to review:


  1. Navigate to the page to test

  2. Launch NVDA

  3. Move keyboard focus to the top of the page

  4. Use DOWN arrow key to check item-by-item

  5. Verify that what is announced by the screen reader matches with what is presented visually.

  6. If Semantics don't match what's announced, perform Semantics specific testing.

    • Lists not marked up as lists

    • Headings not marked up as heading

    • Tables not marked up as table

    • etc.

  7. If Forms don't communicate what's presented visually, perform Forms specific testing.

    • Inputs have labels

    • Instructional text announced

    • Error messages announced

    • etc.

Note: Semantics, Forms, etc. specific tests coming soon.
