Adrian, the short answer is that yes, websites built using older 
versions of HTML should also be fully supported in Edge. HTML adds new 
features with each new version, and only much more rarely takes features 
away. Some features of HTML5 date back to the very first version of HTML.

I don't know whether Narrator gives 100% access to Edge, but it is the 
only screen reader with anything like real support, yes. NVDA has some 
support, but I don't know how extensive it is. None of the other screen 
readers Jaws, Window Eyes, Supernova etc. has any support that I know of
