The 2 different sets of steps below will get you started in the right direction:

You'll need to have a Google account / email address for the steps below to work. You can sign in 1st, or later.
1. Go to the Google Homepage.
2. Arrow down to Google apps, & press enter to open this list of apps.
3. Now press, control + F, to start the Jaws find dialogue. Type in *voice *, without the spaces or stars, & press enter.
4. You will be taken here:
Arrow down 1 time to, Voice, & press enter. This will take you to the Google Voice set-up page.
I did not complete the Voice set-up process, so I can't go any further.

I'm popping this out to its own topic. It's been a few weeks since I last snagged one of these, so I can only give a limited degree of detail.
Of course, you have to have a Google account with which the number can be associated, so if you don't then grab yourself a Gmail address/Google Account first.
These are free, and you can call local and long distance in the United States and Canada without charge.
Start at http://voice.google.com
It does not involve captchas, but you do have to have another phone or cell phone available so that they can call or text with a 3-digit (it might be 4) code you have to enter during the setup process that essentially proves a human being is trying to snag one.
You may or may not be able to get a number in your own city or area code. In any case there are plenty of options left, but you may have to take a number not related to your actual physical location in any way. I set my cousin up with one when she was staying with her sister and had no cell service, but had WiFi. I had to pick an area code on the east coast to get the phone number I wanted (for memory's sake). If you make your request based on a digit sequence you'd like in the number you pretty much always get a list of potential picks that may be anywhere in the USA if you were thinking physical location of an area code.
There's not much more I can offer at the moment. I've never tried to go
through the setup process with anyone with a screen reader and I don't do this
often enough to have remembered each and every step.
