Windows comes with a basic screen reader called Narrator that reads text on the screen aloud and describes some events (such as an error message appearing) that happen while you're using the computer.

  • Open Narrator by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking Narrator.

Narrator is not available in all languages, so if the steps above do not work, Narrator is not available for your language.
