Microsoft Narrator

Today I chanced upon a software that I seriously did not existed. I normally press Windows followed by U for Shut Down, and today did it in a quick succession. Instead of opening the Shut down window, it took me to the Microsoft Narrator window.

In fact, as soon as you get these windows on the screen, a text to voice converter starts reading out the options like File, Edit etc. It is basically useful for people with low vision to find out the options that they require to choose, for which this screen reader might be of utmost help.

I guess this is part of the softwares that Microsoft has created to help the disabled.
