Explanation:

Quote from: https://www.freedomscientific.com/products/software/jaws/

“JAWS, Job Access With Speech, is the world’s most popular screen reader, developed for computer users whose vision loss prevents them from seeing screen content or navigating with a mouse. JAWS provides speech and Braille output for the most popular computer applications on your PC.”

Quote from Mills and Sterne, “Aural Speed Reading”:

“While braille is the format of text most often associated in the sighted imagination with blind reading and blind education, today reading by ear is far more widespread. An accomplished blind reader with access to a computer will use a screen reader like JAWS to turn printed text into spoken words, and may even play it back at a speed so fast that, to the uninitiated, it sounds more like a bee stuck in a can than a voice speaking.
