Do you know what Screen readers work on the Pi 3? (A screen reader reads out text on the screen and is what I need to enable to be able to use devices because I am blind)

    Did you read the article on raspberrypi.org here: raspberrypi.org/blog/… ? There are some links to a discussion group etc where you might find the info you need. – Charemer Dec 3 '19 at 15:00

There are a couple.

Orca is a popular screen reader that works on the Raspberry Pi, and you can install it by typing from the terminal "sudo apt-get install gnome-orca". Here's that command pronunciated: "s u d o space a p t dash g e t space i n s t a l l space g n o m e dash o r c a"

yasr is another screen reader that works on the Raspberry Pi. It reads the terminal, so you would be able to do alot with it as the terminal is very powerful. You can install it by typing from the terminal "sudo apt-get install yasmr". Here's that command pronunciated: "s u d o space a p t dash g e t space i n s t a l l space y a s m r"

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

  • While this answer is a good summary, it does not explain how to use these screen readers once installed. – LegendusMaximus Dec 5 '19 at 17:19
