Web Accessibility for Speech Recognition Users

Date & Time
Tuesday, March 19, 2024 - 2:20 PM PDT  
Location
Orange County 3-4  
Description
People with mobility impairments use speech recognition software and have multiple options today across different operating systems. Dragon Naturally Speaking is one of the old players and still the preferred choice for many speech recognition users. Windows and Mac have built-in speech recognition, as do Android and iOS. Keyboard support is the base for making web content accessible for speech recognition users. Apart from keyboard support, keyboard focus, logical tabbing order, descriptive labels for links, form controls, buttons, and custom controls need to be considered for making web content accessible for speech recognition users. In this session, we’ll figure out how speech recognition supports different accessibility techniques and what coding practices we should avoid. Additionally, we’ll learn about best practices for enhancing user experiences for speech recognition users. We shall take a deep dive to understand what label or title attribute of user interface controls takes precedence regarding speech recognition. We shall also explore the level of support for ARIA attributes and the impact of focus visibility for users. In our exploration, we shall see how different tools perform, including Dragon, Windows Speech Recognition, Mac’s Voice Control, Voice Access on Android and Voice Control on iOS.
