Just wanted to get other folks' opinion on this. I've been helping to
evaluate a prototype application here on our campus - time/payroll type
tool. Surprisingly I've found the the interface is pretty accessible with
NVDA/Chrome and JAWS/Firefox but not accessible with NVDA/Firefox. The
developer said he tested his design with ChromeVox so that helps explain
the accessibility with Chrome.

Two questions: at what point do you say an application or website is
screenreader accessible - does it have to work with every AT/browser combo
or if it seems to work with most, is that okay. Second, any ideas on why
the NVDA/FF environment does not work? BTW - this application was developed
under the ServiceNow platform.
