You could use one of your Jaws settings temporarily, if all you need
is the screen reader for a limited time and ask for a reset as well.

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.

Subject: Recommendation: Open source screenreader program
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
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.
