version as it has the most and includes NVDA etc.

Free Natural Reader is a text reader available in both Windows and Macintosh
versions. Paid versions are available with additional features, but the
free version works well as a simple text reader. A user can work with it in
two ways - (1) as a stand-alone text reader by opening files within Natural
Reader, or (2) as a tool bar to add reading functions to MS Word, MS Excel,
and web browsers.

Also, a free web version of Inspiration is available in beta at

Also, check out WebbIE - this is free, text-only web browser. This offers a
simple view of a web page without graphics, and allows a user to skip over
links if desired.
