Well, I would not have placed any value in how accessible a page looks to a sighted person, who probably does not know how to use a screenreader.
The only suggestion I would give is to learn web navigation.
Freedom Scientific has a training session called "surf's up" which has you go through a fake purchase from a fake web site, but it teaches you much about getting through web pages.
I don't know if they have kept it up to date as far as recent web page elements, such as opening a closed menu, but never the less, it will help folks get used to using the complex pages.
I know some folks still want to use pages like we did when we first started getting on-line, by tabbing to things.
Now adays, there usually hundreds of tabs on a page, so that technique is not feasible.
Insert + H on a web page will serve as a reminder of some things to try when one is having problems with a page.

                Glen,

 

I respect your opinion. So, how would you have tackled this problem differently? Teach me something instead of criticizing me.

I don't think so.

If he is familiar with the screen reader used by the blind individual:  As is Eric Damery:  He could well know whether a site accommodates screen readers.  Or at least the one with which he is familiar.

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

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.
