How To Find And Use A Screen Reader

Screen readers are text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content.  St. Andrew's by the Sea Episcopal Church designs and codes for accessibility. We strive to ensure our content is accessible to screen readers.

There are free options available including NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac. What we recommend is JAWS for Windows. You can use this with your favorite web browser.

Screen readers accept input in a variety of ways, but one of the most common forms is through your keyboard. By pressing the down arrow in JAWS, for example, you are able to navigate through items on the page. JAWS will also accept Braille input.
