Thank you for your reply: I think nvda is getting more and more closer to
Jaws and I would dare to say it is very very good now... I am using it full
time and don't feel the need for Jws at all...
I don't no with specific software, but i know friends of mine who use it at
workplace also, nvda I mean.

Hi Angela,the best one.
I think that Linux is superior to Windows in many ways, although likeNVDA, Orca is not as robust as JFW.
But most of the software we use in Linux is free.their first computer would do well to get them a computer with Ubuntu,
especially if they are not visually impaired.
They can more safely browse the web and still do their eMail and playthose card games.
Or I think that if they had an XP machine or will soon need to replacetheir Windows 7 machine, you can install Ubuntu on that old computer
alongside of their old windows and they will be happy and more secure.

matter. A lot of the changes that inconvenience blind users until they
learn how to use them may be intuitive and quickly understood by sighted
users. and, in the case of screen-reader problems, sighted people wouldn't
have any of those problems. Also, as in the new feature of sets, they may
not be on by default. As I recall what I read, sets is off by default.
blind users have problems that I'm in no hurry to get Windows 10. Even if
the problems are temporary, such as screen-reader problems that are dealt
with not too long after the upgrade, Windows 10 has nothing I want that
justifies even relatively minor inconveniences time after time.
