    1. Go this page (linked to the anchor nearest the characters): http://adrianroselli.com/2017/10/dont-use-aria-menu-roles-for-site-nav.html#ARIAPattern

    2. Run Read Aloud through the keyboard shortcut listing: Enter, Space, ↓, ↑, →, ←, Home, End, Esc, Tab↹, Shift + Tab↹, and Shift + F10.

    3. Note that the arrows are skipped. They are defined as HTML entities in the code.

    I attached the video that was in my original tweet. You can see it at the 5s and 16s mark.

    Maybe related: in a follow-up tweet I noted that it also ignores emoji such as 🖰, 🖮, and , but handles others on a page.
