I might have missed something here, but shouldn't the screen saver only come on after there is no activity on the PC for awhile? I know we had an issue at one time where if you were reading a particularly long piece of text (which took longer to read than the timeout for the screensaver) it would stop reading when the screensaver starter. I think we actually resolved that one, but that's about the only instance I can think of where the screensaver should cause a problem?
The only other "screensaver" type thing which can be problematic, is there are a few "distributed computing" programs around now like BOINC and Folding @ Home and others. They use your computer's idle time (when the processor isn't busy doing anything else) to compute various things from finding cures for cancer (or Covid_19), to searching for alien life and anything else you can think of which would take a lot of computing power. Sometimes those programs will keep trying to use processing power even when you are using the PC, and this can cause significant degradation of performance with screenreaders (and even in general without using a screenreader).
Otherwise, I'd be interested to learn more about the screenreader causing problems.
