I tried doing this once, and I wasn't even able to install the damned thing. If you've got any advice or instructions on how to get started with a screen reader for testing purposes, I'd be really interested.

VoiceOver is built into OSX and is fairly full featured. Anything for Windows is either expensive or half baked IMO.

NVDA is free and not half-baked. In some respects, NVDA works better on the web than the expensive, dominant screen reader, JAWS.

On Windows I tried NVDA and the demo version of JAWS. Installation worked without issues for me, and I looked for tutorials on how to use them/put up the keyboard shortcut overview. Sorry I can't point you to anything more specific right now.
