I used Zotero for managing citations for my Master's project last year. I am
blind, using the JAWS For Windows screen reader. I found the accessibility
of Zotero to be okay, if I utilized a combination of both the desktop
application and the web interface. In short, adding and referencing
citations worked best in the desktop application, while editing citations
was only accessible through the web interface. The student should be aware
that it is usually necessary to perform extensive editing for each citation
added to Zotero and it is sometimes necessary to edit the citations that are
added into the document from Zotero.
Please note, I tried using both Zotero and Mendeley. I found that while
Mendeley has more features, it is not accessible at all. So, using Zotero
is better than typing every citation by hand.

Hello All:

I am wondering if anyone can suggest accessible referencing software. We
have a student who needs to do a literature review and uses Voice Over.
