Dragon Naturally Speaking is a speech recognition software where you can
provide input by voice to use the web. ZoomText is a screen magnification
software. So to get the prospective of how website / app is working for
people with low vision, elderly etc., it would be worth using a screen
magnification software such as Zoom Text and to get th eprospective of
people with motor difficulties and prefer to use speech input, it's worth
testing with speech recognition software.

Point I would like to make it these cannot be alternatives to screen
reading software such as NVDA, JAWS etc., target users are different. You
need to make a choice based on requirement of your customers. More
importantly, testing needs to be done against standards.
