  • WebAIM: Screen Reader User Survey 10 Results

    In December 2023 and January 2024, WebAIM surveyed preferences of #screen_reader users. We received 1539 valid responses. This was a follow-up to 9 previous surveys that were conducted between January 2009 and June 2021.

    In order, the most problematic items are:

    – CAPTCHA - images presenting text used to verify that you are a human user
    – Interactive elements like menus, tabs, and dialogs do not behave as expected
    – Links or buttons that do not make sense
    – Screens or parts of screens that change unexpectedly
    – Lack of keyboard accessibility
    – Images with missing or improper descriptions (alt text)
    – Complex or difficult forms
    – Missing or improper headings
    – Too many links or navigation items
    – Complex data tables
    – Inaccessible or missing search functionality
    – Lack of “skip to main content” or “skip navigation” links
