Screen reader software

Screen reader software

Screen readers are software programs that allow blind or low vision users to hear the text that is displayed on the computer screen read out with computer generated speech. Options instruct the computer to read, or spell, a word, a line, highlighted text, or a full screen of text. Alternatively, depending on the software, it can be asked to state the location of the computer's cursor, read pre-designated parts of the screen or the active choice in a menu.

Screen reader software can also be used with refreshable Braille displays.
