screen reader

a program that reads out a computer display for the visually-impaired or for those who do not have access to a monitor. The screen reader can read text that appears in a standard way in dialog boxes, menus, icons, and text editing windows by attaching to operating system components that are used to display the text. The screen reader may display information in Braille, use voice output, or use other audio signals to indicate graphics on the screen.
