Screen Readers

The BVI version of the WOWI was developed with, and endorsed by, an organization exclusively serving individuals who are blind. They universally rate it as the most accessible career assessment on the market. It was carefully designed to be fully compatible with JAWS and other screen readers. Screen readers are also used by people with certain cognitive or learning disabilities, or users who simply prefer audio content over text.

How to Choose

The best choice for you will depend on the type of computer or smartphone that you have and the browser you prefer. Nearly all computers, tablets, and smartphones have a screen reader function built in. Popular programs are JAWS and NVDA for Windows computers, VoiceOver for the Mac and iPhone, and TalkBack on Android.
