The results from WebAIM’s survey of screen reader users during October this year have been posted. Like the previous survey, some results are expected while others are a little surprising.
A few highlights:
- Half of the respondents (53% of those with disabilities) use a screen reader on a mobile phone or mobile handheld device
- CAPTCHA, inaccessibly authored Flash, and ambiguous links are the three most problematic items the respondents encounter
- 51.3% of respondents use YouTube frequently
