Window-Eyes is a program to aid the visually impaired to work with a computer.
This program will read the screen content and anything that you select with the pointer of your mouse, and then will speak in a loud voice, reading the title of a window, the text in a document, or giving you a description of available commands. It will also tell the operator about system messages appearing on the screen. You can configure what to hear through the Settings panel. You can also tell the program to redirect the speech (aimed by default to your sound card and speakers) to several compatible speech devices. Window-Eyes also supports to display what it reads through Braille displays.

The Window-Eyes demo is fully functional except for one item: it will not read the commands in the menu bars. You can use this evaluation version without charge but you will not be able to use it for more than thirty minutes each time. You will need to reboot your computer, and then the program will let you use it again for another thirty minutes.
