Re: accessibility and on line courses

I think what I’m finding is all of the ways I can navigate quickly are not always available when they don’t test with jaws.

This is a fair question. While there are occasionally some
differences in the way that JAWS and NVDA conveys information
about what's on a Web page it's reasonably safe to say that pages
which pass a manual audit with NVDA would likely do so with JAWS.
If anything, if they only tested with JAWS and not NVDA I'd
actually be a bit more concerned due to the fact that JAWS has a
tendency to guess what should be read with forms that may not
properly conform to current standards. This is actually great for
the user but can give false positives to the one doing the
testing. As long as their code is properly written and marked up
you should be OK.

In my current university
context, I am teaching a course developed by a company that
is external to the university. I keep running into things
that are not easily accessible, and they have told me they
are only testing accessibility with NVDA. So, my question,
is it likely that I will find incompatibility with JAWS when
they only test with NVDA?
Thanks for any info – I
want to be able to give them some feedback.
