This does seem feasible. Could you point me somewhere where a site does this though? I'm curious and have never seen a webpage detect any of the AT I'm using.

I would like to include some audio files. I observe that when an audio file is activated, JAWS is still talking about the page. Is there a way to detect a screen reader, and either wait five seconds or figure out when it is done talking before playing the audio? Thanks in advance.
