Manifest Theme List Test

This post is a test of how screen readers handle unordered and ordered lists in the Manifest theme. Screen readers are not announcing either bullets or numbers of list items unless list-style-type is explicitly declared for each list using inline CSS.

Unordered list without inline CSS override:

  • an item
  • another item

Ordered list without inline CSS override:

  1. first item
  2. second item

Unordered list with list-style-type set to disc:

  • an item
  • another item

Unordered list with list-style-type set to circle:

  • an item
  • another item

Unordered list with list-style-type set to square:

  • an item
  • another item

Ordered list with list-style-type set to decimal:

  1. first item
  2. second item

Ordered list with list-style-type set to lower-alpha:

  1. first item
  2. second item

JAWS is announcing “bullet” (•) before unordered list items if list-style-type is set to disc, circle, or square.
