thank you for this.
I can think of a perfect example this morning.
I was trying to click on a button on a webpage with NVDA. It was
quite the important button, too, as it was a button that allows me
to pay a bill.
Apparently the bank changed something because NVDA, no matter
what browser I used, no matter if the window was maximized, no
matter if I used object nav and then routed mouse cursor to NVDA
with capslock shift m, it would not click. Chrome, firefox ESR,
firefox latest, edge, internet exploder. So then I tried narrator
with edge and had the same results.
Opened jaws and chrome, got it first try by pressing enter.
That, right there, made it worth the $125 SMA I just paid simply
because I did not have to go through the hell of changing my bank,
credit card, etc based on one button. I'm still going to be
raising hell with said bank but, really, this superior NVDA is
better than jaws attitude simply because it is free needs to stop.
This is coming from an NVDA user. There are things NVDA can't do
and jaws can and vice versa. Neither are perfect and judging
someone based on what screen reader they use is just absurd and

There are some uses for which JAWS is better. My impression
is that NVDA is either as good or better than JAWS for typical
uses such as browsing, e-mail, working with audio players, and
doing other things the majority of users do. But JAWS is much
more user configurable and the user who knows how to do so can
make it work with many programs that aren't widely used, but
that the person may want or need. A lot of users won't have a
need or wish to do so but the ability to customize JAWS is
important for some users.
And there are times when JAWS works with a certain program
better and where NVDA works with a specific program better.
It's common to see the attitude among committed NVDA users
that it is very superior and to pretty much dismiss JAWS. that
isn't a proper view. for some, perhaps many, users, NVDA would
be superior. but there are blind people who rely on JAWS in
important ways. It's far better to have choices and I don't
hope to see the demise of JAWS.
