Frame Titles and Layout
The layout of the contents of a web page can be set into frames rather like a picture or even a frame within a frame (an iframe) so that more information can be carried within a single page. If the frames do not have a title the screen reader user may not know where they are in the page or which piece of content to read next. It is preferable to use Cascading Style Sheets rather than frames. (W3C WCAG 2.0 1.3, W3C WCAG 2.0 2.4 and W3C WCAG 2.0 3.2).
These techniques may be used to perform the test.
Quick Overview: Check the code or use Web Developer toolbar, use a screen reader or WAVE Text Only view.
