Does anyone know how to try out using a screenreader on a Windows machine?

 

Cool thing: Windows Narrator is built into current version of Windows. From what I've learned recently, the Edge (Chromium) + Narrator is the most accurate browser/AT combination at the moment, especially where ARIA is concerned. Safari+VO has some issues and has fallen behind.

 

Great question. It’s not as simple as OS X VoiceOver, but you can use either NVDA on Windows, a free screen reader, or on Google Chrome there’s an extension caller ChromeVox which is a screen reader specifically for Chrome users. I personally haven’t used either but please let me know what you think of them if you do!

 

Thank you! I'll check them out and let you know!
