I would suggest you reach out to Freedom Sceintific to see if they have a language version for China. I do know they have one for Japan and other like countries.

Thanks for that Phil. I did contact the HKBU but no reply. I did see their work in tweaking NVDA, which is interesting.

My colleague Makoto also provided useful input so I've a better idea than I had before.

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

or maybe the National Braille Press working with the China Braille Press - because a braille display works with a screen reader https://www.facebook.com/NationalBraillePress/posts/188894807244

I recall there was one called "sunshine"

... tried 金山词霸 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

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.
