Making Sure Things with Opacity of 0 are read in Screen Readers

The Test

Some ordinary text.


The text with opacity of 0, which is completely invisible on the the screen in all cases tested, was read in every configuration I tested where the ordinary text was read. I think this is a a good behavior, because opacity is used for fading items in, which often should simply be present for screen readers, and we have plenty of tools to use to hide the text from screen readers if that is desired.
