That's actually an interesting suggestion. I bet klango could be made to read text adventures. Not entirely certain but I imagine something could be worked out. It could never be a fully-featured screen reader, but I can definitely see it having a lot of potential andeventually expanding to encumpass a lot more fields than it does now.

Well we could, but we'd be wrong.

A screen reader is intended to give access to on screen text in just about any context text could appear, ---- within programs, in windows, ---- even in flash pains if text is used.

Klango player does not do this. It provides self-voicing access to a number of handy services, ---- most of which are unique to the player such as the Klango forum.

You could not for instance, pick up a text adventure and expect Klango player to read it, ---- sinse that's not what Klango player is for.

Beware the Grue!

Can we call the clango player a screen reader?
