Seems like this might not match a screen reader where speech was off temporarily or permanently (e.g. a deaf-blind user with a refreshable Braille display)

linear -> "export to audiobook" (like print, except to an audio format)
linear-screen -> "'read all' in a screen-based ebook reader" (like "Speak Screen" in iBooks)
screen -> "interactive navigation of the screen" (like using VoiceOver to explore around the screen in a browser)
