How to find and use a screen reader

Screen readers are types of text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content. Citizens National Bank designs and codes for accessibility. We strive to ensure that our content is accessible to screen readers.

There are free options available, including NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac. We recommend JAWS for Windows. License fees start at $90 a year. You can use this with your favorite web browser.

Screen readers accept input in a variety of ways, but one of the most common forms is through your keyboard. By pressing the down arrow in JAWS, for example, you can navigate through items on the page. JAWS will also accept Braille input.
