I've heard both that and that search engines have trouble with frames,
yet framed sites rank highly in google search results commonly.  Does
anyone have actual experience trying to use screen-reader software on
framed sites?

Not that I'm advocating the use of frames, I'm just curious whether this
is a commonly-repeated myth or truth.
