Hi Saaqib,


I haven't been around for a while but am now catching up on messages to this 
list and I haven't seen anyone answer your question.



I'm not familiar with the Holy Quran myself, so I can't answer your questions 
directly. Here are three options you might want to investigate.



1. There is an Arabic synthesiser available for JAWS 18 and upwards, which you 
can download from the link below, and I presume it will be able to read a text 
in the ways you want, including the Holy Quran, as it does with other languages.

2. There was a thread on the JAWS list from 2013 about reading Arabic which you 
might find useful.

3. NVDA is an alternative to JAWS. If you're happy to investigate it, it has an 
Arabic website and discussion list which you can find from the link below. At 
the very least you could pose your question to other Arabic screen reader users.

Good luck,

Steve
