Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.
