I started using NVDA most of the time in the second half of 2010, as the XP computer I had back then had power issues and NVDA used less resources than JAWS. When I replaced my XP computer with the Windows 7 laptop I am still using as I write this, my JAWS was too old for Windows 7 and I couldn’t afford to upgrade JAWS, so for nearly eight years now I have been using NVDA full-time. I used to say that I would probably use JAWS again if it’s needed for a job, but, now that I am unlikely to find a job, I expect to only use NVDA, which gets better and better every year, in my opinion.
Bye for now!
I started using NVDA full-time in 2011 because I could no longer afford the Jaws upgrades. I haven't looked back.
I started using nvda in 2010. I ditched the shark cold and made nvda my primary screen reader by the next day. I was and still am not good at using it but I can get around now that the laptop keyboard finally makes more sense.
Take care and love nvda.

I started using NVDA over 30 percent of the time in March, 2015.
I had used it some clear back in 2007, and I used on a library computer at Ohio state University in 2008.
Now, I use NVDA at least 90 percent of the time, and I use it in situations that I never thought I would use it in.
Thank you for this community, and making NVDA and all add-ons what it is today!

Hi, I started with NVDA in Dec 2013. I put it on my system because I was going to use it for the trip to Vegas we were taking over Christmas that year. It has taken me almost 5 years to fully make the switch, though.
The reason I'm asking this question is because there are a lots of screen readers out there to choose from many of you choose NVDA over Jaws.
I really want to know why.
Now I got my answer now.
All comments and feedbacks are more then welcome to come in.
Thanks all for taking your time to answer my question.
