I sent a mail to the tigris.org guys, asking to create an account for
you manually. I guess they will contact you soon.

I figured as much. But it's not very hard to have another package for
the user to select for install. The hardest part will be to detect
whether the screen readers are installed. Hopefully they have a fixed
registry key or a fixed installation path we can check for, otherwise
the installer would have to search the harddrive for their exe files to
determine whether they're installed or not - and that can take a really
long time which I don't really like for our installer.

The first step would be that you commit the scripts for the screen readers.
Then we have to figure out how to detect whether the screen readers are
installed, and last we have to adjust our WiX files to include those
scripts in the installer.

If you use the current nightly build, then you won't get my changes yet.
The nightly build is uploaded every night at around 2 GMT+1. And since
I've committed that change about an hour ago, you'd have to wait for the
next nightly build to get this new feature.
The next nightly build should be online in about 4-5 hours (win32
version, the x64 version is built at 3 in the night and uploaded around
5 in the morning).
