Hello Maria. As other’s has said, JAWS isn’t free, whereas NVDA is free to use, however, if you like it, you can donate to the product. Obviously the developers has got to make money to keep it going, otherwise if it was free but with no way’s to donate, it would go under. Also, its Open Source, and it cannot be taken over by a for profit company. And we’ve seem one such company buying up all its competitors. No way is NVDA going to be swallowed up or anything like that. This is the major difference between a non-profit and a for profit company.
