Accessible Reference Management Software for use by Scholar who is Totally Blind

macOS and Mac Apps

Hello Everyone,
My name is Emily Romero and I am a Ph.D. student from Colorado studying educational psychology. I have been totally blind since birth and have used assistive tech with speech outputs ever since I can remember. I am looking for reference management software to help keep my research organized and make writing literature reviews easier and more efficient. Does anyone know of accessible reference management software usable by researchers who are blind? Thank you so much for your help!

My knowledge about the subject is not the best, however I have been unable to find any of those accessible. I do it manually.

I wasn't able to use any of the nice tools that are available. I just use the referencing in Word and my tutors accept the limitations on the styles I can use.

Search for Ilaro and you will find it in the appstore.

You create the citation in a master list and add it to the document you are working on. Yu just then insert it at the point you are referencing and at the end, it puts all the references in an alphabetical list.

My tutors are happy wiht it, but it's really just for referencing in documents not managing research.

I tried all the fancy online/offline systems and they were just to much messing about.

Of course, I use Word on Windows with JAWS - so all this is useless I'm afraid!with it, but it's
