[AI] Regarding accessibility of Tally software with screen readers

Dear Friend,

Tally is not as accessible with screenreaders as some other softwares like 
Word, Excel etc. But blind users can work in Tally using the JAWS cursor for 
navigating through screens & available choices.

I would say that Tally is about 75% accessible with JAWS. The major point 
where Tally is not accessible is the new Company creation screen where the 
user needs to take sighted help. Also, if an account name exceeds 24 
characters, Tally reduces the font size to fit the entire name in the 
account field. This reduction in font size makes the letters too small for 
JAWS to read & JAWS will stay silent on that particular account name.

Apart from the above, a blind user can navigate through Tally with the JAWS 
cursor & successfully work on par with sighted users.
