This screen reader line is present whether you are running a screen reader
or not.

<A class=offscreen href="http://maps.google.com/?output=html">Screen reader
users: click here for plain HTML</A>

Hi There,

I use Voiceover with Leopard OS 10. I had never tried the maps before,
so I just went there. It somehow new that I use a screenreader,
because it said something like, screenreader users click here for
plain html. So I did, and entered University of Arizona. It allowed me
to enter my start address, and get directions in plain text. So,
sounds like it works from my end.
