CallBurner Screen Reader Compatibility

As of version 1.0.0.31, CallBurner has a screen reader compatibility option. This improves accessibility for blind users or users with sight impairments among others.

To turn on screen reader compatibility, choose this option from the CallBurner menu in the system tray:

Accessibility > Screen Reader Compatibility

After turning this on, you will need to restart CallBurner by choosing the Quit option from the CallBurner menu in the system tray, then restarting CallBurner from the Windows Start Menu.

Our thanks go to Darrell Shandrow and the guys at Blind Access Journal for encouraging us to improve CallBurner accessibility and for testing the changes. Darrell has also documented how to turn on the accessibility option from the keyboard:
