SCREADER is a freely available screen reader using a software text-to-speech tool. No extra hardware is required, but you do need a sound card and a text to speech (TTS) synthesizer. It is a modification of the Screen package and most of the features of Screen are still available. Future versions of SCREADER will not be implemented in Screen. At that time it will read from each virtual screen. This version only works on the virtual console where SCREADER is executed.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
