Screen Readers for Canvas

I am curious what resource schools are using as a screen reader in Canvas for students needing accommodations.  There isn't anything built in Canvas and looking for suggestions for screen reader resources.  Any input is appreciated.  Thanks!

kbeimfohr​, I've shared your question with the Accessibility​ group to enhance its visibility among like-minded Community users, and just for good order's sake, I'll include here a link to the accessibility documentation that lists the screen readers that are supported by Canvas: Accessibility within Canvas

This Google Chrome Extension reads text that is entered on a page in Canvas.

This seems to work on pages where text has been entered in Canvas Rich Text Editor.
