best screen readers for browser testing

I am a webmistress and web designer who is investigating different screen
readers to buy for the purpose of testing accessibility on our websites.
Price is also a factor of course. I like IBM Home Page Reader but am worried
that it is not that common. Should my company buy this $200 program just for
testing websites or should they go for the more expensive Window-Eyes or
JAWS since they are the most commonly used? Any suggestions would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
