Output to screen readers in Windows 8 and other .NET apps


A long time ago, in a post far, far away, I went into using Microsoft SAPI as a way of reporting information back to a user using the in-built SAPI engine and briefly explained how this could be used to help people with a visual impairment as well as some other uses. If you are interested in focussing on accessibility in your desktop or Windows 8 apps and want another powerful tool in your arsenal, this post will tell you how to communicate directly with people's screen readers (if present).
