Remember that people may be using an on screen narator, such as that
provided with windows 2000 etc. so it would not be possible to check for
those. The best option is just to make your site as accessible as possible,
or have a separate accessible version.

Hail evolters,

I'm fairly sure the answer to this is "no" but I have to ask anyway:
Is there a way using client side javascript to detect whether a user is
using screen reader software such as JAWS, in much the same way as
detecting which browser they're using?

Thanks in advance!
