What Screen Reader Shall I Install On My Dad's Computer?

Episode 1817 (2:13:55)

Richard from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

Richard's 94-year-old dad is losing his vision, and he's lost the ability to remote access his dad's Mac. He's going to be there at Thanksgiving and wants to install a screen reader so he can read the Wall Street Journal online. JAWS is a good option, now that it's more affordable. But he'll have to learn how to use it, and that could be problematic in the long run. Leo says he has a much better idea. The Wall Street Journal offers an audiobook version of the WSJ. It's not the whole thing, but it's curated for the most important stories, briefings, and even podcasts. They're all free online. There's also an App called AudM, that has a variety of magazines he can listen to.
