Screen reader that runs on Microsoft Windows operating systems and provides magnification, speech and Braille support for visually impaired users. Software such as a speech synthesiser and a refreshable Braille display are available.

ScreenReader provides intelligent screen reading with natural voices, Dolphin Cursor and robust Braille support. ScreenReader is specifically designed for people with blindness or anyone that has no useful sight. Because everything you need to know is spoken or brailled, there's no struggling to see the screen - in fact you don't even need one! Perfect for people that rely solely on speech output, use only Braille or prefer a blend of both.

Key Features:

  • Human Sounding Speech:
    • ScreenReader features the high quality, human sounding, Vocalizer Expressive text-to-speech synthesiser to read documents and apps out loud.
    • Characters, words or both can be spoken aloud to improve confidence while writing in any text field such as a document or the Subject field of an email.
    • Read from Here is for when you simply want to have a document or web page spoken to you in its entirety.
    • Quick navigation keys skip forward and back through Microsoft Word documents, web pages in Internet Explorer and PDFs in Adobe Reader.
    • Item Finder speeds up navigating complex documents and web pages
  • Intelligent Screen Reader:
    • Text style information is announced so you can check your documents look great. Fonts, sizes, colours, bold, italic, underline, subscript and superscript changes can all be reported.

    • Monitor Markers announce changes occurring elsewhere onscreen away from the cursor. Security notifications appearing in your web browser, file download progress, when the other person in an instant message conversation is typing a message, Monitor Markers will cause ScreenReader to speak automatically.
