Problem with frotz for pc using screen readers

ok so, I downloaded frotz for pc and, when I load a game, my screen reader does not read anything. I have tried using jaws and, nvda but, to no avail. is there anything I can do to fix this?

Is this Windows Frotz?

yes it is windows frotz

This thread from 2017 suggests that there’s a version of Windows Frotz that works better with screen readers, and gives a link to it.

I have not tried this myself, though.
