Isaiah, JAWS has a speech history mode and also has a debug switch to record spoken output, slash z I believe when loading JAWS.  Finally JAWS also has a Braille viewer app which is on the start menu and shows the braille equivalent of items although speech and Braille can differ.

Info about speech history mode:

NVDA offers a great feature called Speech Viewer which allows you to visually see what the screen reader is saying. Does JAWS have an equivalent to this? Through a google search, I found a thread from 2013 that suggested using JAWS Braille viewer. It looked promising but it only displays the first 40 characters of what is being read.

I am a user experience (UX) researcher and I’m conducting some accessibility testing on our site with real users. It would be great if I could read and save everything that the screen reader is saying. This will help me analyze what users did so that I can make recommendations to our creative teams on things they can change in order to make users’ experiences more delightful.
