Advertised by its manufacturers as the “world’s most popular screen reader for windows”, Job Access with Speech (JAWS) is a commercial screen reader for Microsoft Windows that can provide feedback by using text to speech (TTS), Braille or a combination of both ones. Several licensing models are provided, but unfortunately pricing varies depending on different factors (e.g. buyer nature).

While a trial version is provided, it only works for 40 (forty) minutes from the time it is launched, and you need to restart your system to get another 40 minutes trial period. Note that leveraging JAWS’ trial version to perform accessibility testing may constitute a license violation; I would recommend using NVDA instead.
