There is Jupiter: <https://eklhad.net/jupiter.html>. The author prefers
the term "adapter" to screen reader, and in many ways Jupiter doesn't
exactly behave like a screen reader. It has a mode where it operates
like one, but by default it works by capturing and reading a
transcript of a terminal session. So you aren't limited to the 25 rows
and 80 columns of a standard screen. This works best with applications
that have a "command-and-response" style of interface, rather than a
full-screen curses interface.
Speaking of yasr, there is tdsr: <https://github.com/tspivey/tdsr> which
works similarly to yasr. tdsr has a bit more of a modern feel, with no
dedicated review mode and so forth. It is small and written in Python.
I think the author had a basic working implementation after a couple of
days. It runs on Linux, Mac, and possibly other operating systems.
