“never be bought?  That is not true.  Everyone has a price.  Some people money, some it’s a vacation others it might be a car.  The point is everyone can be bought out.  Do I think this will happen with NVDA No.

Hi Bhavya!

Thank you for this. Open Source is the most important concept behind NVDA. I hope we can always keep it that way. The fact that we all, as a community own the NVDA code, in a sense, means that we can never be bought. How beautiful. May NVDA and this entire community serve the blind to the greatest extent. I am so proud to be using NVDA at least half of the time, and I am ready to get certified in using and teaching NVDA to others. I am here, Bhavya, to help in anyway I can.

Dear all,

‘Will VFO Acquire NVDA?’ has been a highly debated topic in the

blindness community in recent times. Find out the answer to this

inquiry with all the cogent reasoning, justification and arguments you

may desire as I explore all the possibilities and probabilities in my

new blog post.

‘Now, let me restate the question of the hour in a simplified form –

will the VFO-Group, owners of the Freedom Scientific made JAWS screen

reader, after phasing out its subsidiary AI Squared’s Window Eyes

screen reader, venture out (caught the pun?) to buy out NV Access and

its free and open source NVDA screen reader, and thereby establish an

absolute monopoly as far as Windows screen readers go?’
