Has she looked at WebSpeak a web browser for the blind. It was developed by
Productivity Works in NJ. There is a press clipping online from the Suday
Times which details it. Look at http://www.prodworks.com/st960225.htm
Productivity Works can be contacted by mailing info@prodworks.com

I don't know much else about it.
