Actually, the two "big ones" would be Window-Eyes by GW Micro and JAWS for
Windows by Freedom Scientific. IBM Home Page reader is a talking browser,
not a scren reader. And yes, all three depend on IE for Web access.

I believe (can anyone confirm) that the two big ones, IBM Homepage

and thus will support id based fragment identifiers.
