NVDA is free. It just reads the screen. A lot of modern websites are hard for sighted readers to read these days, with scripted ads, banners, menus, chat boxes, and paywalls popping up over the text.

Even MIT & Harvard had to deal with this on their EdX online learning platform, in that case by adding closed captioning for the deaf.
