While I can't say I've used wireshark with a screen-reader, they 
also provide "tshark" which is a console-mode version of wireshark:



This should make it accessible to your favorite console screen 
reader (yasr/speakup/whatever).

I don't know what distro you run, but it should be available in 
Debian/Ubuntu as simply

	apt-get install tshark

There's also "tcpdump"


and "ngrep" (net-grep)


which should allow similar functionality.

Chained with some sed/awk scripts (or some python/perl/ruby 
scripting), they should allow you to create similar functionality.

Hope this helps,
