    I see that MS Word will read you a document, but does anyone know how I can have a webpage read to me?

    There are a number of tools you can use for this, most developed for people with low vision. A friend of mine who is blind uses JAWS, but there are others as well.

    Here is a review of some of the other platforms available for this:

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

      Not a lot to go on but here are a couple free Chrome extensions that will do the trick. You may have onboard tools depending on which device you use so a quick Google search should help there.

      Read&Write for Google Chrome also has a free component to read aloud and is easier to listen to for longer periods of time. (There are premium tools too but text to speech is free for Google Tools, PDF files and websites.)

        Call me; I'll happily read you some pages.

        This response came naturally to me; I'm an old fart and a digital dummy!

          There is a free open source option called NVDA.
