I just opened waterfox, went to a page on The Register (tech news site), and invoked the reader view with alt-ctrl-r. It seems to be working. Perhaps try it with this page:

The reader will not work on all pages, only on ones that the browser thinks are formatted like an article of some kind, I think. SO if you can't invoke it, maybe you haven't yet tried it on a page where it would apply.

none of them work for me with waterfox. i can press the keys until the cows come home and nothing happens.; i even tried the jaws pass through function. and tried with no screen reader loaded.
i can still see when there is changes on the screen.

Alt-ctrl-r is also a key command that is supposed to work in firefox, but it
never has, for me. Instead, pressing f9 does the trick. I think I tested it
once so far in Waterfox and, indeed, f9 does not seem to do anything. I will
try accessing the reader through the menu or the alt-ctrl keystroke and see.

BTW, as nice as the reader function is, everybody should be aware that it’s not
perfect at determiningg what is “useful content” on a page, and you may
occasionally miss something important while using it. It is nice for reading
articles, just be aware that it’s not 100% dependable.
