I have a friend who has Windows 98 (first edition) and would like something to read what is on the screen to him, since he is visually impared. I have found something that reads what is highlighted, but that isn't too helpful since it can't read messages or buttons. He needs something like the Narrator in Windows XP. And preferably free. Any ideas?

The first website's program only reads what's copied. The second website doesn't appear to have text-to-speech programs at all. He needs something more like Win XP Narrator, where it can read buttons and messages, rather than what is just copied. Also buttons that are pressed on the keyboard. Thanks for replying. I still need help though.
