And to piggy back on Ron, neither SPSS nor SAS offers a wholistic usable experience for a screen-reader user, although they offer hit-and-miss functionality. For a Mac user, though, I don’t have any solid information – I’ve worked only with Windows users when this question has come up over the past couple of years.

R in pretty good but the user needs to know there screen reader. Actually NVDA seems to get the best results.

Hey all,

I have a colleague at another institution asking about stats software for a doctorate student who is blind. I’ve seen posts on lists, but can’t remember what was stated.

How well does SPSS or R play with screen reading technologies? Thanks for any feedback you can give.
