ASAP was the best of the DOS screen readers. It was small, and very good at
notifying the user appropriately of on-screen changes as applications updated
the display.

JAWS for DOS was also very capable and worked well.

For my part, I'm very glad to have left the days of DOS behind long ago.

If you must use it for some reason, Dosemu under Linux would probably be best.
