Hi there,

 

Try Non-Visual Desktop Application (NVDA) at http://www.nvda-project.org/
it's free and probably the most standards compliant screen reader available.

 

Also try JAWS at
http://www.freedomscientific.com/downloads/jaws/jaws-downloads.asp  -
there's a free forty minute demo version available.

 

Or better still, find some people who use a screen reader every day, build
some test cases, and get them to test your site ...

ChromeVox for Google Chrome is free and works fairly well. I'm not sure how
it rates but I use it to test all of my sites.
