Windows Narrator: Is it a Viable Screen Reader?

Thursday, June 24 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Are you wondering if Windows Narrator is a viable option for a screen reader? When Microsoft first released Narrator in 2000, it was a bit crude compared to JAWS and NVDA, but it has come a long way since then. For those who may be making the transition from screen magnification to screen reading technology, or for those who want to use both magnification and text to speech, Windows Narrator may be a great low cost option for you.

Cody Froeter, CVRT, shares many of the pros and cons of using this Microsoft product built into the Windows operating system. You’ll learn about many Narrator features and its usability.

Cody will also discuss:

  • turning Narrator off and on
  • adjusting Narrator settings
  • choosing the Narrator voice
  • using Narrator with Windows Magnifier
