Try searching the Mozilla web site. Its most popular browser, Firefox,
uses  extensions  to  expand  its  default capabilities, and somewhere
there  might  be  a  screen  reading  extension  (plug-in). Firefox is
OpenSource, and so are most of its extensions, so if you find one that
reads  text,  and  as long as you give its author(s) a credit, you can
use parts of their code maybe?
