You can also download an add-on. I have one instaled called Just Read that can 
be toggled with the control plus shift plus L command. You can do some other 
stuff with it, but I only bother with reader mode. 
This is for Chrome as well.

Hello Adrian,

You might want to try pressing Alt V followed by R.  This should turn on and 
off the reader view.  I have a CTRL Alt R shortcut key assigned to a Remote 
Incident Manager program and so when in Firefox I just use the view menu.  

For anyone interested in getting reader view to work in Chrome, it works quite 
well but needs some setting up.  Here are some steps to follow for anyone 
wanting to use the reader view feature in Chrome:

1.      Locate your shortcut for opening Chrome, whether it's on your taskbar, 
desktop or within the Start menu. Right-click it or use the application key and 
open Properties from the contextual menu.
2.      Tab until focus is in the Target edit box.   the file path for the 
Chrome application is shown in this field.  
3.      Add a space after the path text and then the following:
--enable-dom-distiller
4.      Tab to the Apply button and use spacebar or click Apply with the mouse.
5.      Close down all instances of Chrome. Icons in the system tray such as 
Hangouts or Google Now will need to be closed.
6.      Test out the Distill mode by opening Chrome from the shortcut you 
edited.  Go to a page containing an article.  Use the Alt key and up or down 
arrow to the “Distill page” menu item and press enter key.  If using the mouse 
click the icon with three lines in the top right-hand corner and choose Distill 
page.

To go out of Distill mode you can use Alt with left arrow key.  This will load 
the page again in the usual manner.

Take care.

Thanks. I followed your suggestion, but reader view is still not working for 
me. control-alt-r does cause JAWS to pause, after which it sometimes resumes 
reading, sometimes not. But when it resumes, it reads the ads, etc. I hate to 
clutter the list with this problem. 

Thanks also to Mike B for the notes on the reader view extension.

Even after invoking reader mode, you still have to navigate to the actual 
article. Heading, next block of text that isn't a link, etc. You're not going 
to be placed at the start of the article or whatever it is you're trying to 
read.
I just finished reading an article in the New York Times in reader mode and 
it's working fine for me.

Jim, I also have a subscription to the New York times. Like you, I press 
alt-control-r. Then I press the JAWS command for "say all." Nothing happens. 
Any hints?

I have no problem using reader to read New York Times, Washington Post and 
Financial Times articles.  Maybe that's because I maintain a subscription to 
each of them.  All 3 have varieties of pay walls.

By the way , I access reader with alt/control/r.  Alt/control/f does not 
activate for me.  As I recall, the short cut key alt/control/r is listed next 
to the reader view option in the Firefox top line menu.
