As long as you have the list properly tagged, make the actual symbols Artifacts...screen readers will be able to identify individual bullets. Otherwise, of you used Word, just switch to the standard filled circle bullets.

One of the problems I'm encountering is bullet symbols that get converted as "nmlkj", which is disturbing for screen reader users, to say the least. Apparently this is a unicode encoding issue, but I have no idea what to do about it.
