Would this be a good question for ATIA - assistive technology industry 

or maybe the National Braille Press working with the China Braille Press - 
because a braille display works with a screen reader 

I recall there was one called "sunshine"

... tried ɽʰ but it is really for Chinese speakers to read English 

Hong Kong Blind Union http://www.hkbu.org.hk/en_services4_2.php  NVDA is 
an open source screen-reading software. In order to accommodate the need 
of Chinese users, the Hong Kong Blind Union has added several new features 
to the official NVDA which includes:
A Chinese speech engine 
Reading Chinese and English with two separate speech engine 
Support of several common Chinese input methods 
Explaining Chinese character with its phrases

Subject:        Most commonly used Screen readers in China

Hi all,

Does anyone know the most commonly used screen readers in China?

Christophe Strobbe has some really good pointers here, but has anyone more 
up to date info? [1]

Any tips/pointers appreciated.
