Talking web browser?

Does anyone know of a talking (self-voicing) browser that is not
dependent on Internet Explorer? A colleague is looking for a tool that
could be used on a design course to easily enable students to experience
what it is like browsing the web while using a screenreader. The course
used to use WeMedia, and found this very good, but it is no longer

We have considered Webbie and Home Page Reader, but both of these
integrate with IE, and we cannot expect our students to have this

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!
