I would echo the NVDA choice. You can find a great deal of documentation on the screen reader. Look at NV Access https://www.nvaccess.org/ and Narrator is also a good choice as well with good documentation on its use.

NVDA is open-source. For further details, let’s talk offlist and please subscribe to NVDA users list located at nvda.groups.io/g/nvda.
Hello list members:
Since retiring I have been involved in a number of volunteer activities. Recently I had a conversation with a local agency who is looking for a volunteer to assist clients in completing an online registration form as part of an interview process regarding potential receipt of specific services.
I understand that I cannot legally use one of my additional Jaws licenses because I have the Home version. Truth to tell, other than JAWS, I have never really worked with any other screenreader programs. Some years ago, Idid a cursory review of NVDA. I understand that Narrator has improved in some measurable ways. I know that there are other programs out there.
For purposes of this opportunity, where I would need to load a screenreading program onto a laptop in order to conduct the interviews, I am looking for any recommendations of open-source screen Reader programs.
Any assistance is appreciated.
