Re: NVDA with Edge browser
I doubt there is much advantage except that certain things like Curtana (spelling) results are shown in Edge and you can't change that. There may be some minor technical advantages, I believe I read that Edge processes JAVA script faster but I don't consider such things at all important. I suspect there may be some visual differences some sighted people might like. I doubt there is any meaningful reason for blind people to use Edge, although, the more browsers, the better since one browser may work well on a certain site with a screen-reader where others may not. I don't have Windows 10 so I'm expressing opinions based on my general impression of how browsers are all becoming increasingly alike.
It would be interesting to get comments from those who use Edge or have tried it.

I do have a tutorial on using microsoft edge, the creators update for
windows 10 fixed some of the problems like the speaking of characters
into the location bar etc.
I guess advantage it is the same on the phone as it is on when you use a
desktop computer and maybe save your bookmarks etc to be used on both.
apart from that i am not sure.
There is a tutorial if you are interested which can be found at
You can jump down by headings to the ones that says about how to use
microsoft edge with NVDA.
It is more like a overview and the basics of using it.
