Forgive the bluntness of my answer. If you are looking to enlist in the Armed Forces, you need to know how to read. If you can not pass the reading comprehension portion of the ASVAB, you may not enlist. Soldiers and sailors need to be able to interpret orders and directions quickly. There is often not enough time to stop and have it read to you and try to guess.
 
The Armed forces currently are picky about enlistees.
 
If you are  joining to interpret languages, you may have a chance. Check with the recruiter if you are going into one of these programs.

The answer to this question depends on your status. If you are a potential applicant taking the ASVAB for enlistment purposes, then the answer is no. However, if you are a high school student, taking the ASVAB assessment as part of the ASVAB Career Exploration Program and your IEP (Individual Education Plan) allows for this modification, then the answer is yes. This is also true if you're a student with a visual impairment. I hope this answers your question.

Hi Greg,
There are 4 parts of the ASVAB that determine whether you earn a high enough score to become eligible for enlistment. Two of these parts are Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension. Since you would need to know definitions of words as well as have an understanding of the written word I would assume there is no way to have the ASVAB read to you.
As a veteran, it was my experience that all manuals, documents, test materials, etc. were written on a 9th grade reading level. It would probably benefit you to take some courses or get some tutoring to get to that level at minimum.
