The extension works well and the developer (John) is responsive. I had issues with YooTheme's Widgetkit Gallery and jQuery conflicts. John promptly addressed the issue in an update to ScreenReader.
He is also responsive to feature requests.
Well worth the small cost.

Great plugin. I had some jquery issues and the support solved it. In dutch sometimes the voice stops halfway a sentence, and continues like there is a break. Anyway, the plugin and support is great!

Accessible designs has been a very difficult subject to learn. I no longer need to figure out a global screen reader solution for Joomla design.

This is a standard plugin to install, then enable it and that is it. I added my personal background css color style. I appreciate the work that goes into excellent extentions when I can move on with other projects without a need to customize extensions using a manual.

Thank you and I hope more great accessible products are coming from you.

This is the easiest plug-in I have used. It works great with several languages (among others I used Greek and Chinese). The support they offer is unbelievably good! I had the first reply within minutes and Marco spent a lot of time to help me (although I have not bought anything yet...). He even offered a free service in order to combine the reader with 'Zoom lightbox' from the same company. PERFECT.
