People who are blind or hard-of-seeing often interact with computers using devices called "screen readers". These screen readers will read aloud the words that are written on the screen (or in the part of the screen the user cares about).
I don't know how screen readers pronounce the Tetragrammaton, but I assume it depends on the software (and I assume that it is not properly).
Are there any halakhic issues that can come of this?
- Can you write out the Tetragrammaton somewhere it will be read by a screen reader? (proxied speaking)
- Can you write the Tetragrammaton in order to have it read by a screen reader? (intentional proxied speaking)
- Can you use a screen reader when you visit a website that has the Tetragrammaton? (hearing)
