Some combo boxes are easily opened and read by screen-readers, including
NVDA and Jaws.  However, there are other combo boxes that are apparently

"combo", but cannot hear the options when opened.  The options are
easily seen and reviewed by a sighted user.  Is there any solution to
reading these types of combo boxes, short of having a sighted person
read them to you?
