On screen-readers

Windows Narrator

Windows Narrator is a basic screen-reading program. The program gives speech feedback for menus and dialogue boxes. It does not speak the entire web page. The following steps will enable you to turn on that feature:

  • Click the Start button or press the Windows logo key on your keyboard.
  • Open Programs. Click All Programs or press P on the keyboard until All Programs is highlighted and press Enter.
  • Click Accessories or press A on the keyboard until Accessories is highlighted and press Enter.
  • Click Accessibility. If you are using the keyboard, it will already be highlighted, press Enter.
  • Click Narrator or press N on the keyboard until Narrator is highlighted, press Enter.
  • This opens the Microsoft Narrator box. The Narrator immediately begins to read instructions on how to use the feature.
  • Click OK or press Enter on the keyboard. Another window will appear with various options. Click the checkbox or press the spacebar on your keyboard to customize your options. You can also adjust voice settings by clicking the Voice button or pressing V on the keyboard.

Macintosh VoiceOver Utility

VoiceOver Utility is a screen-reading program built into the latest versions (OS 10.4 and 10.5) of Apple Macintosh Operating Systems. It provides speech feedback for menus and dialogue boxes and can speak out whole web pages once configured.
