I think you might have missed the mark there, I would have assumed he
was talking about Terminal Services or similar. (Citrix perhaps?)

I'm not sure how a zoom application would work? Presumably alternative
browsers just rely on being loaded on the system.

JAWS 7.1 (and I assume 8) does support TS but in addition to the JAWS
Professional it requires an upgrade:

However, I've not actually talked to anyone who's actually used it, or
any other screen reader with thin clients.

Apart from that I don't know, you might have to ask the vendors...
