The differences are what would add up to about 795 dollars for 9x/me/xp
home and about 14.95 dollars for nt/2k/xp.  Narrator is free and real
basic.  It is kind of like watching black and white tv vs color tv.

As to screen readers to test with, I am a screen reader and I know many
others.  Actually, we are screen reader users.  I would caution though
that if you decided to take a more direct software approach that at the
least, you recieve good training from someone who is well versed in the
use of screen readers.  As for what software to test with, I'd test with
several.  I would also test with at least two versions back of the ones
that have them.
