I do not believe it supports Microsoft MSAA technologies used by screen
readers like JAWS and WINDOW EYES. But it has other great features for
people who are not blind. For example:

1. Keyboard support
a. Independent navigation of form controls (TAB and Shift+TAB) and links (A
and Q keys)
b. Navigation of header elements (W and S)
c. List of links (Control+J)
d. Toggle images on and off (G)
e. Toggle between user and author styling (Control+G)
f. Continuous increase and decrease font size (+ and - on numeric keypad)
more in the help menu....

2. Built-in user styling options (look in View/Style menu)

3. Supports custom user style sheets

There is no one browser that will meet the needs of every disability. But
for built-in, out of the box features Opera is one of the best and my favorite.
