This is not a mailing list for the discussion of Windows, as its focus is
Linux, but JAWS and most other Windows screen readers can and do speak
through a standard soundcard.
Not sure what you mean by point 3 above. Certainly a decent screen reader
should speak most screen contents intuitively, but if anyone thinks they
can design a screen reader that does not require any special commands for
screen review then they are (1) kidding themselves and (2) not familiar
with the way blind people use screen readers. The ability to examine the
screen and have information selectively spoken at will is integral to the
whole screen reader experience.
