Is the source material truly print (or image), or is it "stuff 
displayed by some application"?

Someone responded that mac os has some facilities built in for the 
former, and I'm pretty sure windows does as well (when I left the 
assistive tech world - DECtalk - in the late 90s, we were 
cooperating/competing with MS on some of this stuff) .. if the source 
is print/image, you'll have to do the OCR step first..

The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind probably has resources to 
help focus your efforts as well.. they were a good group back when I 
was working with them..
