As far as I know, the topic of vocal Web browsers is still one of
controversy. The best one that I have seen is PW Webspeak, which was
demo'd at CSUN in March. Unfortunately, I can't remember the publisher.
It did indeed have hookups for HTML tags so that it would announce links
and jumps, etc., to help with the confusion of navigating a Web page.
By the way, Window-Eyes is a really good program. I especially like it
because it is the only Windows screen reader that is easy to use with the
Windows scientific calculator that I have seen.
I'll see if I can dig up more info on PW Webspeak. The 1996 CSUN
Proceedings will surely have the vendor contact information.
