Well, they go back as far as DOS, there's a lot of brands.
Try the NFB, they should have a historical perspective.

Please, forgive this O.T. This is the only list I'm on, so I thought of asking here.
A friend of mine, her ein Italy, has been assigned a thesis on the history and evolution of screen readers for Windows.
She doesn't seem to find any suitable material.
Would anyone have any suggestions as to where to look for some documentation that might help her?
I know the request is a bit vague, but that's all I ahve for now.
Thanks in advance.
