Eyes on Success hosts Pete and Nancy meet and talk with the man who pioneered screen readers.  Check out his website at http://jimthatcher.com/book2/chapter05.html

A number of screen readers are available to access computers.  But it wasn’t always this way.  Jim Thatcher was a pioneer in the development of the first screen readers and years later of the first standards for web accessibility.  Hosts Peter and Nancy Torpey speak with him about the early history of both and about his current work as an accessibility consultant.
