Very simple. If I am having no success and they look at the screen and describe what they see and it appears to be all graphical with no textual clue as to what I might do. There are arrows going off in different directions and headings that were clearly not being read as well as other visual aspects. That is why I came to this group to see what I am missing or what I can teach that person to be able to give me clues in the future when I encounter a difficult website. So, yes, a sighted person can definitely be of help if for nothing else to just describe what is seen on the screen.

How would a sighted person know if something is doable with a screenreader?

Subject: Walmart.com and Jaws
I want to explore the possibility of ordering groceries from Walmart.com. I have the latest version of Jaws and a sighted friend says it doesn’t look doable with a screen reader to them. Is anyone using the regular part of Walmart.com or the grocery.walmart.com section with positive results? When I tried to navigate the sight, there did not seem to be any rhyme or reason to things but I’m told visually it is laid out very clearly. Also, when I tried to search Google for any tips, I got nowhere.
