Disability: Blindness – Low Vision
WebAnywhere is a web-based screen reader for the web. It requires no special software to be installed on the client machine and, enables blind people to access the web from any computer they happen to have access to that has a sound card.
WebAnywhere will run on any machine, even heavily locked-down public terminals, regardless of what operating system it is running and regardless of what browsers are installed. WebAnywhere does not seek to replace existing screen readers – it has some big limitations, namely that it will not provide access to desktop applications like word processors or spreadsheets.
Operating system: Any operation system with Firefox or Internet Explorer Browsers.
Installation: It requires no installation, works with adobe flash, but also works with the installed sound system.
