I agree with your statement.
I just switched over from using the latest build of JAWS 2018 to
NVDA 2018.1.1, and I'm quite happy with my decision (Mainly a
financial matter for I could no longer afford the $120+ SMA.) Been
using JAWS since 1999, so you have an idea on how much money I've
spent on it ;P
Took some time for me to adjust my fingers to using NVDA keyboard
navigation, but once done it's very responsive, and with the
installation of ETI Eloquence; sounds just as good.
The only benefit JAWS has over NVDA is the ability to create
application specific scripts easily. JAWS also allowed you to
re-assign classes for windows it would improperly define. Really
wish NVDA allowed this option for there are several applications I
use that it keeps incorrectly treating a listbox as if it was
Other than that, NVDA is definitely on par with JAWS.

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
