It is my understanding that the remote plugin is similar to the JAWS Tandem feature where you can access a remote computer where a human is located or where you have setup a matching key -- you can use auto connect to connect automatically later future to a secure desktop. However, I'm not sure this solves the issue for access of a Citrix environment. The ability to install the software without speech and have the information send via the citrix channel in a closed environment is beyond the NVDA remote access plug-in as far as I know -- but I could be mistaken.

JAWS will require a copy on the server side and another copy on the user's workstation. With special configuration, those two will work together to provide access to all of the underlying information that screen readers need.

I can't speak to other assistive technologies, though.

Subject: [WebAIM] Instaling a screen reader for a citrix user

Dear all,

Im facing the challenge of preparing an accessible work station for a Citrix (server based) user. Would you have any suggestions how we could turn the program she has to work with accessible for her although it is located on some far server?

Thanks,
