You might be able to use Otter to record the process and then you can actually sync it with Zoom to provide text and captions as well. There is a way to do all of this. K-leigh

I use Camtasia to quickly record a screen reader reading a document. With the ability to highlight as you read with some screen readers, it works very well. I do have Zoom and now that I know/from Dawn how to have my screen reader “heard” I can add this to training. Thanks!

Cheers, Karen

Subject: [Athen] Question: Best ways to record a screen reader voice?

Hi all,

I'm hoping someone can help me out with this situation. I'd like to do more targeted sessions with faculty and staff at my university around improving accessibility of websites. The issue is that I can't always work in my own environment with my desktop, and it's difficult to ensure that a screen reader is installed and functioning on someone else's computer/laptop. I've even tried NVDA-on-a-stick with my profile, but I've had it fail, depending on the windows version of the laptop/computer I'm trying to run it on.

It would be easier if I could just record the audio (at a good quality without the ambient office noise) of my trying to use a website and share that with colleagues. I can do this for document remediation by using Speechify or Natural Reader, but not for websites.

Is there a good way to record the audio of the screen reader as I try to navigate through a website?
