Standalone Accessible Element

Window-Eyes is a popular screen reader (although less common in the UK). Window-Eyes is fully featured although possibly less functional than Jaws in its ability to overcome the inaccessibility of applications used in the corporate environment. If a candidate is familiar with a screen reader it is important to explore alternatives with an assessment before deciding upon the best option for their role.

Excerpt from product page description:

Window-Eyes is nothing less than the most stable screen reader available on the market today. Window-Eyes gives total control over what you hear and how you hear it. Plus, with its enhanced Braille support that control is extended to what you feel as well. On top of all that, the power and stability of Window-Eyes means that most applications work right out of the box with no need for endless tinkering in order to get them to function properly.

Applications that utilize standard Microsoft controls will be spoken automatically with little to no configuration necessary. Other applications may require simple modifications to Window-Eyes whose options are easily accessible via a well-organized, and state-of-the art user interface called the Window-Eyes control panel.
