I see where you're coming from. I think if more employers would give NVDA a chance, they could save a lot of money that they could be using to update things like Microsoft office. If I had a job, I'd insist on using NVDA.
Merry Christmas to you and Traci.

Subject: Re: [nvda] I'm dissappointed
I have been using NVDA 80 percent of the time since 2015.
I can access a lot more controls on web pages, access TV Streaming web sites, use YouTube like a breeze, and a lot more.
NVDA can access the Win10 universal apps much better than the shark LOL!
I only use the Shark a few times a month to do some very specific tasks.
I want to emphasize that I cannot access a lot with the shark that I can access with NVDA. I have talked to many people about NVDA, and I have helped a few people use NVDA part of the time.
It is so hard to get people to install the add ons. So many are so stubborn and say they want to use a screen reader that has everything built in, instead of having to hunt all over the place for add ons.
I give them the web sites to find all of them, but they just go back to using the Shark, which really cannot access Edge at all yet, NVDA does much better in Google apps, like Google Docs, sheets, and forms.
NVDA works great in Edge. I can do what I need to do with Edge using NVDA. NVDA is so simple to install, it does not leave footprints all over your computer, it installs in a minute or so. The shark takes 15 minutes for me, NVDA is more stable than the later versions of the Shark, Audio ducking does not work in the Shark, NVDA keeps up much better with changes in Windows, I use many Win10 apps with NVDA, and on and on.
The word is getting out, though, because everyone I talk to who uses the Shark, says that they have heard of NVDA and know someone who uses it.
We really need to get NVDA to employers, so they can see just how great it is for work as well as at home.
NVDA really can enable someone to do their job in the work place. It is easier, because NVDA would install on their computer systems, I would think, better than the Shark. Somehow, we need to let state rehabilitation agencies, employers, the government, know just how great NVDA is.
VFO constantly goes around the country and shows off the Shark to employers, state agencies, and many professional organizations.
Somehow, we need to find out how we can have many NVDA conventions around the world where NVDA is being demonstrated to high up people and all kinds of professionals.
That is where VFO has the upper hand.
We need to get the word out about just how NVDA really could enable people to do their professional job, and not just use it at home.
Merry Christmas all, and have a special time with family and friends.

I dropped the shark in 2010 April. I have not looked back since. I've tried to convince my co workers at my job to use nvda but they say that the shark is better because nvda was not meant fo the work place. Um? Huh? No? I use nvda at my work to do stuff all the time. True it's an at home thing, but still.
Take care all and have a happy Friday
