It's most likely a false positive. In any case, it has come to my attention that thereis a distribution of DOSbox optimized for screen readers. Google "talking DOSbox" and see how that works for you.

There is something called talking DosBox, but I don't see a source page where you can download it.

Thanks for calling this to my attention, I'll look for it.

Haven't been able to find any links to talking DOSBOX.

I can do ALT-ENTER when DOSBOX is running and you can now have half screen,
however, the mouse won't hi-light the text when I click in the DOS window.

Is there a way around that?

None of the google results for Talking DosBox seemed to give a main download page, but one of them had a (fairly well concealed) link that led to the URL http://pmsworld.tdrealms.com/talking_dosbox.7z.

And I found another link at http://batsupport.com/unsupported/dosbox/talking_dosbox.zip.

I should warn you that I haven't used or downloaded these files, so I don't know if they're really what you need. But I have verified that there really are files there. I thought it might be helpful to point out the links since they are pretty well buried on the pages you can find with a Google search and might be hard to find if you can't read much text.

Thanks for the links.

I still think there is a way to copy and paste from a DOSBOX window, but maybe I'm wrong.
