One of the many lists I run is for blind lawyers,
and a similar question was asked. Here is the relevant part of the response:

My personal experience has been that WestLaw is
slightly better than Lexis if you're using JAWS.
For a long time, it was head and shoulders above,
but Lexis has been catching up. Neither of them
are fully accessible - i.e. searching within the
citing references in WestLaw is cumbersome and
copying with citation on both platforms is not available.
