I started using NVDA earlier this year when I heard that Serotek
may not be focusing much at all on System Access in the coming
months and years, and that there was a good chance system Access
wouldn't be updated at some point. Also, a friend of mine had been
sort of gently pushing me to try NVDA. I'd had NVDA as a backup
screen reader on my computer for years and used it in a pinch, but
I really didn't know much about it and consequently was pretty
intimidated at the idea of learning a whole new screen reader. I
don't kno why, because I had to learn System Access at one point
when I stopped using JAWS because I couldn't afford it. :)
Interesting how learning one thing wasn't intimidating but the
idea of learning yet another screen reader was. I bit the bullet,
though, and learned it, and for the last several months, NVDA has
been my primary screen reader. I love it!

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.
