Hi Tim,
I'm always surprised by the seemingly void for this kind of support in OSS. It's
not an easy thing to do, and possibly there is a lack of standards (what with
all the different X toolkits,etc...)...

There seems to be a FFox extension to read the pages, Fire Fox,
http://www.firevox.clcworld.net/ , which may good enough for webmin.

You may want to check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_reader and, possibly
more to the point, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_screen_readers 

Let us know what you come up with :)
