Screen Daemon is a very simple screen reader utility written in Perl. Because of the limited feature set, it should mainly be thought of as complementing Narrator, the screen reader supplied with Windows 2000 and XP. My original goal was to Create a mouse tracker program, but I decided to expand on the basic idea adding features and fixes. For a list of new minor features and bug fixes, see the end of this file.
Features: Follow the mouse pointer Track keyboard focus changes Read control names, types, states and additional information Speak the information excluding repetitive bits Select the voice and adjust it's speed and volume. Read text files starting from the desired line Monitor the clipboard and read the nnew text placed on it Low CPU usage Self-contained (apart from SAPI and MSAA) Free and open-source
